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.
