What is the TIP?

The Cape Cod Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a list of transportation system projects to be implemented with federal and state funds available for Cape Cod. The TIP is developed and approved by the Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization, the regional body comprised of local, regional, state, and federal officials charged with overseeing the region's transportation planning process.  Discussions at MPO meetings help to establish a preference for which projects are funded through the TIP. 

TIP Funding - Funding comes from a combination of state and federal sources, and totals more than $275 million over the five-year plan.

TIP Projects - Typical projects include reconstruction of existing intersections or roadways, construction of new multi-use paths, and the purchase of new buses to support regional bus service. Projects are designed to address safety and congestion concerns for all transportation modes, including vehicle, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian travel. Recent projects include the reconstruction of the intersection of Route 28 and Bearses Way in Barnstable, the Cape Cod Rail Trail bridge over Bass River, and the purchase of new buses by the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority. 

Development of FFY 2025-2029 TIP

Each year, the Cape Cod Joint Transportation Committee and the Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization meet publicly to review the development of the TIP.  The process for the development of the TIP for the FFY 2025-2029 timeframe began in January 2024. Project selections occur in March, and the draft document is released in April for public comment. The draft documents are finalized and voted on by the MPO in May.

The public input process is an essential facet of the transportation planning process. It allows people who use roadways daily to share their experiences and views on potential changes. If you would like to share your support for a project to be programmed onto the TIP, please email us at transportation@capecodcommission.org. MPO and JTC meetings allow for public comments. Public meetings and public comment opportunities for the TIP will be announced soon. Comments are also accepted online. Click the button below to share your thoughts.
