Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

Home » Our Work

Each year, approximately 150 transportation infrastructure projects, collectively costing more than one billion dollars, are submitted as candidates to receive funding through the Boston Region MPO’s rolling, five-year capital investment program, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The types of projects that are eligible for TIP funding include intersection improvements, Complete Streets redesigns, bicycle and pedestrian connections, highway reconstruction, transit maintenance, and transit expansion. Typically, approximately $95 million is available in any given year for such projects. Each year, the MPO gathers project ideas, evaluates and prioritizes the candidate projects, and then selects which projects will receive the region’s share of federal and state roadway funding. The vision established in the MPO’s Long-Range Transportation Plan, Charting Progress to 2040, guides the project selection process. To better understand the TIP process, explore these pages:

FFYs 2018–22 TIP Amendment Two: Public Comment Period

On December 21, 2017, the MPO board voted to release for public review a draft amendment to the Federal Fiscal Years (FFY) 2018–22 TIP. Amendment Two proposes several changes to the MBTA capital investment programs, and reflects what the MBTA expects to receive in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) formula funds in each year of the TIP. The increase in FFY 2018 funding amounts includes funding carried over from the original FFY 2017 funding allocation. These tables show overall funding in each MBTA capital investment program over the five years of the TIP, and specific projects currently planned for implementation throughout FFYs 2018–22.

The public comment period for TIP Amendment Two begins Tuesday, December 26, 2017, and extends for 21 days until 5:00 PM on Tuesday January 16, 2018. The MPO is expected to vote to approve Amendment Two on Thursday, January 18, 2018.

Adjustment Two

On December 7, 2017, the MPO board voted to approve an adjustment to the FFYs 2018–2022 TIP.

Amendment One

On November 16 , 2017, the MPO board voted to approve an amendment to the Federal Fiscal Years (FFYs) 2018–22 TIP.
