State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)

I. Announcements

2014 Regional Transportation Improvement Program

MTC, in cooperation with County Congestion Management Agencies (CMAs) and Caltrans, is preparing the 2014 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). The 2014 RTIP provides about $117 million in new project capacity to the nine-county MTC region. Due to the passage of the federal Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) legislation, Transportation Enhancement (TE) funds are no longer available, contributing to a lower than anticipated funding amount. In the 2014 RTIP, all projects previously funded with TE must now be eligible for State Highway Account funding, or be removed from the RTIP.

The Commission approved the 2014 RTIP Policies and Procedures on September 25, 2013. The CMAs provided MTC with their final project selections by November 7, 2013. MTC adopted the 2014 RTIP at its meeting on December 18, 2013, and submitted the adopted RTIP to the California Transportation Commission (CTC). MTC adopted an amendment to the 2014 RTIP in January 2014, which was also submitted to the CTC. The CTC held the Northern California STIP Hearing on January 30, 2014, and will adopt the 2014 STIP (of which the 2014 RTIP is a part) on March 20, 2014.

II. General Program Information

The STIP is a multi-year capital improvement program of transportation projects on and off the State Highway System, funded with revenues from the State Highway Account and other funding sources. The STIP is composed of two sub-elements: the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) and the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP).

As the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA) for the Bay Area, MTC is responsible for developing regional project priorities for the RTIP for the nine counties of the Bay Area. The biennial RTIP is then submitted to the California Transportation Commission for inclusion in the STIP. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is responsible for developing the ITIP.

III. Previous RTIPs

2012 Regional Transportation Improvement Program

MTC, in cooperation with County Congestion Management Agencies (CMA) and Caltrans, adopted the 2012 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) on December 21, 2011. The 2012 RTIP provided about $143 million in new project capacity to the nine-county MTC-region. Due to a decline in anticipated revenues, about $100 million of the projects statewide programmed with Transportation Investment Fund (TIF) funds from FY 2011-12 through FY 2012-13 will need to be delayed (reprogrammed) to FY 2013-14 and beyond.

The Commission adopted the final 2012 RTIP on December 21, 2011 and subsequently transmitted it to the California Transportation Commission (CTC) for inclusion in the 2012 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The CTC adopted the 2012 STIP (of which the 2012 RTIP is a part) on March 28, 2012.

2010 Regional Transportation Improvement Program

MTC, in cooperation with County Congestion Management Agencies (CMA) and Caltrans, prepared the 2010 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) and adopted the program on January 27, 2010. The 2010 RTIP included about $26 million in new programming capacity, all from the Transportation Enhancement (TE) fund source. This programming effort also included additional capacity for certain counties that did not fully program their share of TE funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. MTC submitted the adopted 2010 RTIP to the California Transportation Commission (CTC) on February 12, 2010. The CTC adopted the 2010 State Transportation Improvement Program (of which the RTIP is a part) on May 20, 2010.

MTC adopted the Policies and Procedures for the 2010 RTIP on October 28, 2009 (MTC Resolution No. 3928). The Policies and Procedures lay out project selection criteria, schedule, and application procedures for the 2010 RTIP. The CMAs are responsible for developing each county's program of projects. The CMAs submitted their final project lists and supporting documentation to MTC on December 16, 2009, for inclusion in the 2010 RTIP.

2008 Regional Transportation Improvement Program

MTC, in cooperation with County Congestion Management Agencies (CMA) and Caltrans, prepared the 2008 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) and adopted the program on January 23, 2008 (MTC Resolution No. 3840). The 2008 RTIP includes over $150 million in new programming capacity, mainly in the last two years of the five-year RTIP (FY 2011-12 and FY 2012-13). MTC submitted the adopted 2008 RTIP to the California Transportation Commission (CTC) by February 19, 2008. The CTC adopted the 2008 State Transportation Improvement Program (of which the RTIP is a part) on May 29, 2008.

MTC adopted the Policies and Procedures for the 2008 RTIP on October 24, 2007 (MTC Resolution No. 3825). The Policies and Procedures lay out project selection criteria, schedule, and application procedures for the 2008 RTIP. The CMAs are responsible for developing each county's program of projects. The CMAs submitted their final project lists and supporting documentation to MTC on December 18, 2007, for inclusion in the 2008 RTIP.

2006 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) Augmentation

On November 7, 2006, California voters approved the Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act of 2006 (Proposition 1B). This bond authorized $2 billion in general obligation bond proceeds to be available for projects in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), to augment funds otherwise available for the STIP from other sources. Under the Bond Act, the funds shall be deposited in the newly created Transportation Facilities Account (TFA) and shall be available, upon appropriation by the Legislature, in the same manner as other STIP funds.

The STIP Augmentation brought about $190 million in new highway capacity to the nine-county MTC-region. Additionally, higher Public Transportation Account (PTA) revenues allowed MTC-region counties to program an additional $84 million in PTA funds.

On December 20, 2006, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission adopted the RTIP Augmentation Policies and Procedures, and issued a call for projects for the RTIP Augmentation. MTC adopted the final 2006 RTIP Augmentation on March 28, 2007.

2006 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP)

At the January 25, 2006 Commission meeting, MTC adopted the 2006 RTIP. The RTIP was submitted to the California Transportation Commission (CTC) for inclusion in the 2006 State Transportation Improvement Program. The CTC adopted the STIP on April 27, 2006. 

The 2006 RTIP is MTC’s proposal for spending regional funding available as part of the 2006 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The 2006 RTIP proposal, approximately $581 million ($445 million in existing capacity plus roughly $136 million in new capacity), will be programmed in state fiscal years 2006-07 through 2010-11. The project list, based on county-level project selection, is available at the link below.

Unfortunately, the programming is not guaranteed – allocations depend on state budget decisions. With increasing state highway operations and maintenance demands on state gas tax revenues and federal contributions, the 2006 STIP will be completely dependent on funding subject to state budgetary decisions.

The STIP has traditionally been a funding program primarily directed to projects on the state highway system. However, due to changes in funding sources, three-quarters of the $1.8 billion in new statewide funding projected in the 2006 STIP is for public transportation purposes. This provides a new funding opportunity for public transportation projects, if the programming becomes available.

2004 RTIP

The 2004 RTIP is the Bay Area's proposal to the State of California for how regional funds should be spent in the 2004 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), and is consistent with the STIP guidelines adopted by the California Transportation Commission (CTC) on December 11, 2003. MTC adopted the RTIP on April 28, 2004 and submitted it to the CTC for inclusion in the 2004 STIP.

The RTIP includes transit, state highway, local road, bicycle and pedestrian projects that the region proposes for funding through the STIP. The 2004 RTIP includes state and federal funds included in the STIP for fiscal years 2004-05 through fiscal year 2008-09.
