Regional Transportation Operations and Technology

The purpose of the Regional Transportation Operations & Technology (RTO&T) set-aside is to fund transportation technology and systems improvements that contribute to the implementation of key outcomes within Metro Vision and the Metro Vision Regional Transportation Plan. The primary objectives of this set-aside are to:

  • Improve transportation system performance and reliability.
  • Improve transportation safety and security.
  • Improve bicycle and pedestrian accessibility.
  • Improve interconnections of the multimodal transportation system within and beyond the region for people and freight.

The FY 2020–2023 TIP established $5 million annually in federal funds for the RTO&T set-aside. It is estimated that at least $13 million remains and will be available for capital projects over the four-year period. The funding available can change depending on project savings that are returned to the pool.

FY 2020 – 2023 Call for Projects

This call for projects will begin spring 2020. The set-aside eligibility rules and selection process are currently in development. Additional documents and call for projects schedule will be posted here when they are finalized.
