Description: This report discusses the DART systems' sales tax revenues. In addition to the fare box, DART's operations are funded through a one percent sales tax levied by member cities on all retail transactions as permitted by state law.

By contrast, for many non-DART suburban cities, taxable sales continued to expand during the 2001-2003 period. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, looks at three possible explanations for these trends.
