Is this OK?
The Authority raises most of its revenue finances through a
levy on the five District Councils of West Yorkshire. It also receives some
funding directly from central government and seeks to maximise income
opportunities, for example from its own properties.
The largest elements
of expenditure are on securing rail and bus services and on the concessionary
travel scheme. In addition to this Metro funds the operating costs of the bus
stations, shelters and passenger information, including real-time information
and administers a countywide prepaid ticket scheme.
The Authority receives
a capital grant to deliver its infrastructure improvements in line with the
Local Transport Plan. Again it seeks to increase the available resources through
grants and other income from third parties.
