Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

What is a TIP?

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-term program which lists all surface transportation projects on the island of Oahu that are eligible for Federal funding or that are regionally significant. The TIP covers a period of four years and contains two additional years for illustrative purposes. The TIP is updated every three years and revised at least twice a year.

The 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). All projects that involve Federal funds or are regionally significant must be reviewed and approved by the Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization (OahuMPO) Policy Board.

The current FFY 2022-2025 TIP was approved by the OahuMPO Policy Board on July 27, 2021, and by the Governor’s Designee on August 24, 2021. The FFY 2022-2025 Statewide TIP (including the OahuMPO TIP) was 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, meaning that all projects can be implemented using committed, available, or reasonably available resources.

The TIP must include a financial plan that demonstrates which projects 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 O’ahu Regional Transportation Plan (ORTP) vision and at least one of the goals.

All projects must be ‘ready-to-go’ in the year that they are programmed to be funded.

All projects must have the appropriate matching local funds in place.

All projects must meet at least one of the FAST Act planning factors.
