Transportation Improvement Program
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-range (3-5 year) capital improvement program (budget) of transportation projects consistent with federal regulations and area policies and strategies. The TIP lists all projects for which federal funds are anticipated, along with non-federally funded projects that are regionally significant. The TIP represents the transportation improvement priorities of the region and is required by federal law. The list includes roadway and public transit projects. For more information contact: Toni Tisdale, 475-2238.
COMPASS produces a regional TIP for both the Northern Ada County and Nampa Urbanized Area and updates the document annually. The list of TIP projects must be endorsed by the COMPASS Board. The U.S. Department of Transportation requires that all projects in the TIP be derived from an approved long range transportation plan, meet air quality requirements and be financially constrained to the amount of funds that are expected to be available. The TIP shows the estimated costs and projected construction schedule of transportation projects. The TIP brochure describes in more detail how the TIP is developed. (English/Español)
The Idaho Transportation Department’s Idaho Transportation Investment Program (ITIP) and Ada County Highway District’s Integrated Five-Year Work Plan provide information on additional transportation projects not included in the TIP.
DRAFT FY2015-2019 Regional Transportation Improvement Program
COMPASS seeks public comment on transportation projects in the DRAFT FY2015-2019 Regional Transportation Improvement Program, August 11 – September 9, 2014.
Each year, COMPASS creates a budget that shows where federal transportation dollars – for roads, transit, and other forms of transportation – will be spent over the next five years in the Treasure Valley.
The budget, called the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the associated Air Quality Conformity Demonstration for northern Ada County, and the federal program of projects proposed for funding by Valley Regional Transit are open for comment through 11:59 pm, Tuesday, September 9, 2014.
Please keep in mind that additional changes could occur throughout the final stages of public comment and development of the TIP. Public comment could lead to changes, as well as projects advancing in End-of-Year program.
COMPASS busca comentarios en un presupuesto que muestra dónde los dólares federales de transporte se gastarán en los próximos cinco años en los condados de Ada y Canyon (año fiscal 2015-2019). El presupuesto, llamado el Programa de Mejoramiento del Tránsito Regional (TIP), incluye el programa federal de los proyectos propuestos para financiación por el Tránsito Regional del Valle de 2015.
Además, COMPASS busca comentarios con una demostración de conformidad de la calidad del aire para el norte del condado de Ada. Se requiere esta demostración en unas áreas, tal como el norte del condado de Ada, donde la calidad del aire no cumplía con las normas federales en el pasado. La demostración debe mostrar que los proyectos que figuran en el TIP ya cumplen con los planes de calidad del aire del estado.

Transportation Service Coordination Plan for Ada and Canyon Counties (3D LMMN Plan)
Transportation Services Coordination Plans are developed to maximize existing public transit services, increase the efficiency of those services, and secure additional funding for these services. Specifically, they fulfill a federal requirement to develop a plan to access applicable Federal Transit Administration funds. The update of the current plan will recognize an official change in the coordination planning boundary from the previous plan that covered six counties (the 3C LMMN [local mobility management network] plan), to one that covers just Ada and Canyon Counties (3D LMMN plan). This boundary change came about through negotiations with metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) in Idaho and the Idaho Transportation Department to better reflect the unique governance structure and planning process that occurs within MPO planning area boundaries.
