MORPC Amends 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program to Reflect COTA Changes
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) is amending the State Fiscal Year 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) to include changes to Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA’s) Section 5307 Program of Projects.
FTA’s Program of Projects is a list of projects proposed by transit agencies or other recipients for Section 5307 funding – the Urbanized Area Formula Funding program – which provides funding to public transit systems in urbanized areas for public transportation capital, planning, job access and reverse commute projects, as well as operating expenses in certain circumstances.
The planning area includes: Delaware and Franklin counties; Bloom and Violet townships in Fairfield County; New Albany, Pataskala and Etna Township in Licking County; and Jerome Township in Union County.
The Section 5307 funding for the following projects has changed. These changes will be reflected on the March 2020 TIP amendment.
|Agency||TIP ID||ODOT PID||Change to Section 5307 Funds|
|COTA||2786||95037||5307 funding increased from $12,895,000 to $13,294,145 for COTA Fields CNG Rehabilitation|
|COTA||3387||105462||5307 funding for farebox replacement alternative payment system moved to SFY2020 from SFY2018|
|COTA||3511||107394||5307 funding increased from $6,720,000 to $7,896,000 and moved from SFY2019 to SFY2021|
