What is the tip2

What is the TIP?

  • Indicates project’s funding, its schedule, and its budget by phase

  • Inclusion in the TIP does not represent a commitment of funds or federal approval of a project.

  • Subsequent federal approval of project required including CEQA and/or NEPA before project can be implemented.

Need to Include a Project in the TIP

  • Required to access federal transportation funding and permits

How is the tip developed

  • Federal and State agencies, County congestion management agencies (CMAs) and other regional Agencies


Tip projects must be consistent with the rtp

TIP projects must be consistent with the RTP

  • Commission decision to fund a project/ program is made at the RTP stage.

  • Then a project or program may be proposed for funding in the TIP once its schedule and budget are fully developed.


Other requirements

Other Requirements

  • The TIP must be financially constrained

  • Finding of air quality conformity

  • Opportunity for public comment and consultation with affected agencies

  • Consistent with the Regions Long Range Transportation Plan

  • The TIP document itself is exempt from both CEQA and NEPA
