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.
