One issue I see with devolving transit funding to state and local governments is often due to state-level politics the state government is loath to provide sufficient taxing authority to city and county governments or transit agencies (where those are something different than city or county government). For example here in the Seattle area there are any number of things including maintaining or expanding transit service that cities, counties, or local transit agencies if only the state would allow them the taxing authority to pay for it. Often even the requirement for voter approval really isn't a problem as citizens feel certain types of projects are worth paying taxes for.
