Notice of Comment Period
Topic: Proposed Transportation Improvement Program Amendments
Period: April 30, 2012 through May 9, 2012
The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) announces a public comment period for a proposed amendment to the 2011-2015 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The public comment period will begin on Monday, April 30, 2012 and end at 4pm on Wednesday, May 9, 2012.
The proposed amendment programs funding for twelve projects under the federal Jobs Access / Reverse Commute (JARC) and New Freedom grant programs. The goal of the JARC program is to improve access to transportation services to employment sites and employment-related activities for welfare recipients and eligible low-income individuals, and transport residents of urbanized areas and non-urbanized areas to employment opportunities. The New Freedom program seeks to reduce barriers to transportation services and expand the transportation mobility options available to people with disabilities beyond the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
In addition, funding is proposed to be programmed for the following project in the New York City area – Jamaica Bay Greenway Non-Motorized & Multi-Modal Improvements.
