Transportation Planning

Metropolitan Transportation Program

Funding: 5304

The Federal Transit Administration provides funding for technical assistance for the state's rural transit-planning program.

Section 5304 funds are apportioned annually to states for use in rural planning and research. Other eligible uses, at the state's discretion, include statewide planning and other technical assistance activities, planning support for nonurbanized areas, research and development, demonstration projects, university research, and human-resource development.

States are encouraged to develop a coordinated program of planning, research, training and technical assistance, taking Sections 5304, 5310, 5311 and RTAP resources into consideration.

Another opportunity for technical assistance for transit-related projects and studies is the PARA program, offered through ADOT Systems and Regional Planning.
