In

establishing a service and usage formula for mass transportation operating assistance, the commissioner may combine and/or take into consideration those formulas used to distribute mass transportation operating assistance payments authorized by separate appropriations in order to facilitate program administration and to ensure an orderly distribution of such funds. Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivision 3 of section. 18-b of the transportation law or the provisions of any other general or special law, the quarterly service payment of assistance to eligible public transportation bus systems pursuant to section eighteen-b of the transportation law for the period April first, nineteen hundred eighty-five to March thirty-first, nineteen hundred eighty-six shall not be greater than a sum computed by applying the formula authorized above.

Local Jurisdiction

AID TO LOCALITIES

Whenever it is determined by the commissioner that the amount of money appropriated for service payments is less than the total amount of money for which these systems are eligible, the commissioner may establish on a quarterly or annual basis, a maximum service payment limit which is lower than that provided by the formula established by the commissioner. To ensure that major private bus operations, as defined by the commissioner, do not make excess profits, the commissioner of transportation shall limit operating assistance to an amount which will not provide more than a reasonable return based on equity and operating revenue as defined by program rules and regulations.

In the case of a service payment made to a regional transportation authority on account of mass transportation services provided to more than one county (considering the city of New York to be one county), the respective shares of the matching payments required to be made by a county to any such authority pursuant to the provisions of this appropriation shall be as follows:

Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph a of subdivision 5 of section 18-b of the transportation law, the commissioner in the program rules and regulations may authorize the use of revenues other than the payment of fares by the passengers, for the payment made pursuant to paragraph a of subdivision 5 of such section. Notwithstanding any any other provisions of section 18-b of the transportation law or any other law, any moneys allocated to public benefit corporation constituting transportation authority in payment of state operating assistance or such lesser amount as the authority shall make application for, shall be paid by the commissioner of transportation to such authority in lieu, and in full satisfaction, of any amounts to which the authority would otherwise be entitled to receive under the provisions of this appropriation.
