Short-Range Transportation Planning

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a cooperatively developed four-year program outlining multimodal transportation improvements and services to be implemented within the Oklahoma City Area Regional Transportation Study (OCARTS) area. The OCARTS Area TIP is prepared biennially by the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) in its role as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for transportation planning in Central Oklahoma.

The TIP is prepared in cooperation with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), local transit providers, and area airports as required by federal surface transportation law. It is prepared under the guidance of ACOG’s Intermodal Transportation Technical and Policy Committees, and is submitted to the Governor, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) through the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT).

The TIP is designed to meet the following purposes:

  • To serve as a short-range implementation tool to achieve compliance with the goals of the long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan
  • To establish a prioritization of projects to effectively utilize federal funds as they become available
    To identify and implement transportation improvements which will reduce congestion, increase mobility and safety, and enhance the region’s air quality
  • To identify proposed transportation projects by mode, type of improvement, funding source(s), and geographic area
  • To estimate the costs of projects proposed for federal funding, consistent with the federal funds anticipated to be available to the area
