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.
