Transportation Programming Subcommittee (TPS)

The primary focus of the Transportation Programming Subcommittee (TPS) of the TTAC is project selection and funding related to the following federal programs:

  • Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ)
  • Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP)
  • Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)

The TPS also provides a forum, at the request of the TTAC, for in-depth discussions related to transportation funding issues and programs.

The TPS is made up of at least one TTAC voting member or alternate from each locality, one TTAC voting member of alternate each from Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) and Williamsburg Area Transit Authority (WATA), one TTAC voting member or alternate from the Virginia Port Authority (VPA) and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), two TTAC voting members or alternates from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), and a representative from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).  The Chair of the TTAC serves as the Chair of the TPS.
