The TEI Task Force initiative was concluded with the adoption of the Section 5307 formula sub-allocation Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 2021. The TEI leadership recommended the formation of a transit providers work group to continue the MOU implementation efforts and coordination on public transit agencies requirements. In March 2023, the CRTPO Board approved the creation of a transit providers work group proposal to carry out the required activities and coordination efforts moving forward.

The CRTPO Transit Providers Work Group (TPWG) will launch in September 2023. The main objectives of the work group are:

  • Enhance collaboration amongst CRTPO planning area public transportation providers
  • FTA Section 5303 related activities
  • FTA Section 5307 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) implementation and related activities
  • Transit planning education

The information below provides a summary of the work of the TEI Task Force.

The Transit Education Initiative (TEI) Task Force was formed in June 2020 by the former CRTPO Board chairman Dr. Michael Miltich to lay the foundation for a shared understanding of federal funding for public transit and potentially recommending an update to the formula for allocation of FTA Section 5307 funds. The TEI Task Force identified three topics to pursue immediately:

  1. Understand the needs and goals of the transit providers that operate within the CRTPO planning area.
  2. Study the federal, state and local rules and regulations of transit funding.
  3. Focus on the Federal Transit Administration Section 5307/5340 distribution sub-allocation formula.
  • Part One: Study and Data Collection
  • Part Two: Develop Recommendations
