Transit assets in this report are determined through a query of spatial data representing the locations of transit assets and the boundaries of the geographic area of interest. This spatial data is not 100% accurate. Therefore, the spatial query performed for this report may result in an inaccurate selection of transit assets near the boundaries of the geographic area of interest. A one-tenth of a mile buffer around the boundary of the geographic area of interest is used for this spatial query.
