State Transportation Improvement Program

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 STIP funds go toward the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) and 25 percent go to the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP).

As the Regional Transportation Planning Agency for the nine-county Bay Area, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is responsible for developing the regional priorities and fund estimate for the RTIP. Each STIP cycle, the Alameda CTC adopts and forwards a county program of RTIP projects to MTC. MTC then 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.
