Regional Transportation Improvement Program
The Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) is a five-year investment plan that identifies projects and programs the San Diego region proposes to fund. The primary purpose of the RTIP is to incrementally implement the latest Regional Plan, which guides our regional transportation investments for the next 20 years.
Projects funded with federal, state, or TransNet money must be included in an approved RTIP. For SANDAG projects to be incorporated in the RTIP, projects must first be included in the SANDAG Program Budget approved by the SANDAG Board of Directors.
2023 Regional Transportation Improvement Program
The 2023 RTIP covers five fiscal years (FY 2023 through FY 2027) and incrementally implements the SANDAG 2021 Regional Plan. Through a public comment process, the RTIP is updated every two years and amended quarterly.
The SANDAG Board adopted the 2023 RTIP on September 23, 2022. We anticipate federal approval in December 2022. The planned amendment schedule for the 2023 RTIP alternates between formal amendments which undergo a public comment process and administrative modifications which include minor changes.
Federal Formula Funds Distribution
SANDAG is the direct recipient of federal formula funds for Surface Transportation (RSTP), Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ), and federal transit funding. By Board practice, RSTP and CMAQ funds are prioritized for regional projects included in TransNet Extension Ordinance and Plan. Transit funding is allocated by an FTA approved split agreement between SANDAG and the transit agencies in the region.
