Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

What is a TIP?

The Federal Fiscal Years 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is the current four-year programming document that lists regionally-significant, short-term transportation projects that will be undertaken on the Island of Oahu.

The FFY 2019-2022 TIP was approved by the OahuMPO Policy Board on July 27, 2018 and the Governor’s designee on August 7, 2018. A full listing of updated TIP projects will be published as each revision is accepted through the TIP approval process.

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 FFYs.

The City and County of Honolulu is using the OahuMPO TIP public involvement process, as outlined in the Federal Highway Administration/Federal Transit Administration metropolitan transportation planning regulations (23 CFR 450/49 CFR 613), to satisfy the public hearing requirements for the Federal Transit Administration’s Urbanized Area Formula Program (49 U.S.C. Section 5307) program-of-projects.

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’.
