State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)

The State Transportation Improvement Program (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: 75 percent of the STIP funds go toward the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) and 25 percent go to the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP).

Alameda CTC adopts and forwards a program of RTIP projects to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) for each STIP cycle. As the Regional Transportation Planning Agency for the nine-county Bay Area, MTC is responsible for developing the regional priorities for the RTIP. MTC approves the region’s RTIP and submits it to the California Transportation Commission for inclusion in the STIP. The California Department of Transportation is responsible for developing the ITIP.
