Transportation Funding

Metro is required by both federal (Title 23 USC 134 (g) & (h)) and state (PUC 130303) statutes to prepare a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for Los Angeles County and program TIP revenues across all transportation modes (pedestrian, bicycle, transit, highway) based on the planning requirements laid out in the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) of 1998.

The agency accomplishes this mandate by planning and programming funds on a multi-modal basis through the TIP Call for Projects , the TIP Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP), the TIP Local Program and the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) .

2016 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program Submittal

Metro, as the County Transportation Commission for Los Angeles County, is responsible for developing the county’s funding priorities for the STIP, and for submitting the projects to the California Transportation Commission (CTC) by way of the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). The RTIP is a listing of state highway and transit projects that Los Angeles County proposes for funding through the 2016 STIP covering the five-year period from Fiscal Year 2016/2017 to 2020/2021. The 2016 Los Angeles County RTIP was submitted to the CTC and Caltrans on December 15, 2015.
