The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a list of projects and programs scheduled to be implemented over a period of at least four years. (ten years in New Jersey) Transportation projects must be included in the TIP to receive most types of federal funding. The TIP provides a mechanism for locally-elected officials and agency staff to review the region’s capital programming. It represents a consensus among members and other major transportation interests in the region as to what improvements should have priority for available funds.
Planning to Implementation
The TIP links the transportation planning process to implementation. Central to this process is Transportation Matters, the regional transportation plan for the SJTPO region, which provides a framework for guiding investment decisions over a 20-year period. It includes both long and short-range strategies and actions leading to the development of an integrated transportation system that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods.
Project Selection Process
SJTPO has a Project Selection Process that is used to score and evaluate projects based on seven major goals:
- Support the regional economy
- Improve safety
- Reduce congestion and promote mobility
- Protect and improve the environment
- Preserve and maintain the existing transportation system
- Favor projects for more important facilities, services, and programs
- Favor cost-effective projects
Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan
Theserves as a comprehensive, one-volume guide to major transportation improvements planned in the State of New Jersey. It is also a reference document required under federal regulations for use by the Federal Highway Administration ( ) and the Federal Transit Administration ( ) in approving the expenditure of federal funds for transportation projects in New Jersey.
The FY 2016-2025 electronic Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (e-STIP) is an application that provides current information contained in the STIP as the program is modified and amended.

These procedures are outlined in a joint Memorandum of Understanding ( between the ) , , SJTPO, NJ Transit and NJDOT.
