Grand Valley Metro Council

Transportation Improvement Program

Transportation Improvement Program

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) identifies proposed projects developed by local agencies in accordance with the joint regulations of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). These regulations establish the TIP as the programming phase of the overall continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative (3C) planning process. This planning process includes local jurisdictions, transit agencies, and state and federal transportation officials. All federal monies returned to the Grand Rapids metro area from the federal fuel tax are distributed through this process.
