Regional Capital Projects

The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) has released the 5-Year Regional Capital Program in RTAMS. The Regional Capital Program details all projects that have funding programmed to them in the five-year plan. Users can view each of the projects that have been programmed as well as a map for each project that shows the location and benefit area. Projects are organized based on the Regional Priority Projects. Furthermore, each project has been evaluated based on the 15 capital project evaluation criteria identified in Transit is the Answer. All evaluations are shown on RTAMS and are included in the downloadable dataset.
