RTA logo Access to Transit Improvement Program

The RTA established the Access to Transit Improvement Program to seek capital funding for small-scale projects that increase pedestrian and bicycle access to the transit system. The Access to Transit Improvement Program is intended to leverage RTA and local funds with federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) funding to help implement recommendations contained in studies completed through the RTA's Community Planning program or CMAP'S Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program. Projects selected as part of the RTA's Access to Transit Improvement Program will be assisted by RTA staff in developing information required for a CMAP application. Projects will then be bundled into one application submitted to the CMAQ program. As part of the FFY16-20 CMAQ Call for Projects, the RTA was successful in securing $4.2 million for eleven access to transit improvement projects throughout the region.
