Statewide and Metropolitan Transportation Programming is a Web-based Training (WBT) course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training.
This web-based course is intended to provide introductory-level information for transportation planning and programming staffs on the process and requirements for developing and implementing metropolitan Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) and Statewide Transportation Improvement Programs (STIPs). The course highlights the FHWA/FTA requirements for statewide, non-metropolitan, and metropolitan transportation planning and programming processes; as well as describes the relationships, roles, and responsibilities of key partners and stakeholders in informed transportation decision-making.
Learners will explore the connections between long-range transportation planning and how projects are prioritized for funding and subsequent implementation within metropolitan TIPs and STIPs as part of an informed transportation decision-making process.
The course provides an overview of the process and requirements for developing and implementing metropolitan TIPs and STIPs, including connections to public involvement, financial planning/fiscal constraint, performance-based planning and programming (PBPP), TIP/STIP administrative modifications and amendments, and FHWA/FTA review and approval of responsibilities/actions.
The target audience for this course consists of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs), transit agencies, Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs) or affected metropolitan transportation officials with responsibility for transportation planning, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) planning staffs, and transportation planning/programming/project development staff working or participating in the statewide or metropolitan transportation planning process.
