Transportation Improvement Program
The Transportation Improvement Program, or TIP, identifies the highway and transit projects funded in the next four-year period. Capital improvement projects must be included on the TIP to receive state or federal funding. In some cases, YAMPO groups small-scale or undefined projects into line items on the TIP based on project type.
Although the TIP covers four years, all MPOs in Pennsylvania update the TIP every two years. YAMPO also modifies the TIP at its regular meetings to reflect project changes. The information contained below is based on the adoption date.

The 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program was approved by the York Area Metropolitan Planning Organization on June 28th, 2018. The 2019 TIP went into effect on October 1, 2018 (Start of the Federal Fiscal Year) and will be effective until September 30, 2020 if the 2021-2024 TIP is adopted in June 2020.
The 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program update process started in February 2019 and will continue to develop a draft program until February 2020. Although public comment may be received at any time during the process, a final public review period will be held around May and/or June 2020. Approval is anticipated in June 2020. If adopted, the 2021-2024 TIP will start October 1, 2020.
In metropolitan planning areas, on an annual basis, no later than 90 calendar days following the end of the program year, the State, public transportation operators(s), and the MPO shall cooperatively develop a listing of projects (including investments in pedestrian walkways and bicycle transportation facilities) for which federal highway, bridge, or transit funds were obligated in the preceding program year (October 1 - September 30).
The listing shall include all federally funded projects authorized or revised to increase obligations in the preceding program year and shall at a minimum include the TIP information and identify, for each project, the amount of Federal funds requested in the TIP, the Federal funding that was obligated during the preceding year, and the Federal funding remaining and available for subsequent years.
The listing shall be published or otherwise made available in accordance with the MPO's public participation criteria for the TIP.
