How it works

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

A Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) lists planned projects and assigns funding over a four-year period. TIPs cover regional projects and statewide initiatives.

Who creates it?

Metropolitan and Rural Planning Organizations (MPOs and RPOs) create local TIPs that include all the projects for a region. PennDOT creates two statewide-manged TIPs that span multiple regions including the Interstate Management Program TIP and Statewide Initiatives TIP.

When is it updated?

Pennsylvania TIPs are updated every two years. The last updated period was in the spring of 2020.

How does it impact the planning process?

PennDOT combines the 24 individual regional TIPs with two statewide TIPs to create the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The STIP is also the first four years of the 12-Year Program.
