  15. Keynote Speaker Mayor Thomas Richards

  16. The ABCs of MAP-21 Basics of the new federal transportation law, how it affects biking and walking and how we can take advantage of new opportunities to fund biking and walking projects and programs.

  17. Federal-Aid Bike/PedSpending 1992-2010

  18. Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century MAP-21 • 2 year bill • October 1, 2012 - September 30, 2014 • Extends funding at current level over all programs Themes: • Consolidates programs • Gives states more flexibility • Streamlines project delivery

  19. Waiting for Guidance www.fhwa.dot.gov/map21/ guidance/index.cfm

  20. MAP-21 Changes to Biking and Walking: Transportation Alternatives • Program consolidation • Changes in eligibility • Reduction in funding • Distribution of funds • Opt-out and transfers

  21. Transportation AlternativesProgram Consolidation Activities: • Transportation Enhancements (now Transportation Alternatives) • Safe Routes to School • Recreational Trails • Redevelopment of underused highways to boulevards

  22. Changes in Eligibility Adds: • Safe Routes for Non-Drivers (networks) • ANY Environmental Mitigation • Scenic Byway Uses Subtracts: • Funding for bicycle and pedestrian education • Streetscaping • Acquisition of scenic or historic sites • Transportation museums

  23. 30% Reduction in Funding SAFETEA LU – FY 2011 TOTAL: $1.2 BILLION • MAP-21 – FY 2013 • TOTAL: $808 MILLION SRTS $202 M TE $928 MILLION TRANSPORT-ATION ALTERNATIVES $808 M RTP $97

  24. Comparison of Dedicated funding in 2012 vs. 2013 funding for TA

  25. Distribution of TA Funds

  26. Distribution of TA Funds:1. Mechanics 1. State gets funding equivalent of 2% of highway funds (minus safety, transit, etc.) 2. Recreational Trails Program funding option 3. Remaining funds are divided into 2 equal pots: • One distributed by population • One distributed through a state grant program 4. State has the ability to transfer funding out of the “state pot”

  27. Distribution of TA Funds: 2. Recreational Trails Program RTP funding gets taken off the top (unless Governor Opts out) • Maintains 2009 RTP process and funding levels • Opt-out date is September 1st every year • RTP projects eligible under TA and STP

  28. Distribution of TA Funding: 3. Remaining funds divided into 2 pots Equal pots: • One pot distributed by population • One pot distributed through a state grant program

  29. Distribution of TA Funds: 3a. Distributed by Population MPOs > 200,000 people • Funding is sub-allocated • MPOs run competitive grant process Urban areas < 20,000 • State runs competitive grant process Rural areas < 5000 • State runs competitive grant process

  30. New York Funds Distributed by Population

  31. Distribution of TA Funds: 3b. Distributed through State Grant Eligible entities: • Local/regional governments • Local/regional transportation agencies • Tribes • Public land agencies • Other local/regional entities state deems eligible ? State DOT

  32. Distribution of TA Funds:4. State can Transfer Funds Transfer options: • Can transfer up to 50% out of TA • Only out of Pot 2 Coburt Opt-Out • Based on unobligated balances • Doesn’t apply until the second year • Unique to TA State of Emergency • State must reimburse TA if it receives federal assistance States can also transfer funds INTO Transportation Alternatives

  33. MAP-21 Changes to Biking and Walking: Beyond TA State Coordinators: • Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinators are still required • Safe Routes to School Coordinators eligible Clearinghouses: Not funded in MAP-21 • Bicycle Pedestrian Information Center • Under contract until Summer 2013 • Safe Routes to School National Center • Under contract until January 2013

  34. MAP-21 Changes to Biking and Walking: Eligibility in Other Programs • Surface Transportation Program (STP) • Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) • Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) • Section 402 State and Community Highway Safety Grant Program (Section 402)

  35. MAP-21 Changes to Biking and Walking: Streamlining Projects SAFETEA-LU Categorical Exclusions • Biking and walking projects MAP-21 Categorical Exclusions • Biking and walking projects • Projects within the right-of-way • Projects with total cost < $5 million

  36. Maximizing Bicycle and Pedestrian Funding in MAP-21 • Spend existing funds • SRTS doesn’t expire • TE available for 3 years • Fully fund, staff, and implement TA • Maximize bike/ped spending across all programs

  37. Break

  44. Bicycle Commuting 2011 Rochester, NY – 1.6% bicycle commuter rate blog.bikeleague.org/blog/2012/10/infographic-bike-commuting-growing-faster-in-bicycle-friendly-communities/

  45. Strategies to Increase Funding: What to Consider • Systems, not projects • Who, What, Where, When, How • Federal vs. state vs. local policies and politics • Programming decisions

  46. Strategies to Increase Funding: Suggested Approaches • Guidance & Policy • Application • Prioritization • Committee Membership • Political Support • Focus on Safety

  47. Surface Transportation Program (STP) • Flexible funding • Construction of bicycle transportation facilities and walkways • Non-construction projects related to safe bicycle use • 80% Federal Share

  48. STPChanges in MAP-21 • Higher funding, more competition • Sub-allocation to metropolitan areas • Same dollar amount as before Eligibility: • Transportation Alternatives activities • Rec Trails projects • SRTS not listed as eligible, but similar projects fit under Safe Routes for non-drivers
