MORPC Amends 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program to Reflect COTA, Delaware County Transit Changes
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission is amending the State Fiscal Year 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) to include changes to the Federal Transit Administration’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.
