Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

What is a TIP?

The OahuMPO’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a four-year programming document that lists all near-term transportation projects on the Island of Oahu that are to receive federal funds or are regionally significant.


The State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT), the City and County of Honolulu Department of Transportation Services (DTS), and the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) all include projects within the TIP. The TIP identifies the highway, public transit, arterial and local street, pedestrian, and alternative transportation projects that will receive federal transportation funds in the programmed federal fiscal years (FFYs).


The OahuMPO creates a new four-year TIP every three years to allow for a 1-year overlap between the previous and the new TIP documents (previously it was done every 4 years, with no overlap). The TIP document is also regularly revised – at least semi-annually (see below for the list of revisions). As each revision is accepted through the TIP approval process and the TIP document is updated to include the changes.

The current Federal Fiscal Years 2022-2025 Transportation Improvement Program (FFY 2022-2025 TIP) was approved by the OahuMPO Policy Board on July 27, 2021, and the Governor’s designee on August 24, 2021. The FFY 2022-2025 Statewide TIP (including the OahuMPO TIP) has been approved by the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and is effective beginning November 23, 2021.

 What are the Requirements?

  • The TIP is required to be financially constrained by year. It must include a financial plan which demonstrates those projects that can be implemented using current revenue sources, and which projects are to be implemented using proposed revenue sources.
  • All projects must be consistent with the Oahu Regional Transportation Plan (ORTP).
  • Projects in the TIP must be ‘ready-to-go’.
