The Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) is the RTC’s five-year program of projects designed to implement short-term street and highway, transit, bicycle and pedestrian projects for Washoe County. The RTC Board approved the FY 2011-2015 RTIP on May 21, 2011. The RTIP includes a summary of projects by fiscal year and shows the agency responsible for implementing the project, funding source and other related information. The RTIP represents a prioritized program directed at meeting Washoe County's growing transportation needs while improving the region's air quality, transportation efficiency, safety and mobility. The RTIP is required by federal regulation and serves as a useful tool in planning and programming transportation system improvements.
