Background:

The TA Program, as administered by KDOT, provides funding for a variety of alternative transportation projects, including pedestrian and bicycle facilities; infrastructure for non-driver access to public transportation; projects that enhance safety and mobility; improve the scenic or environmental, or archaeological assets in our state; Safe Routes to School projects; and others. All selected projects are required to meet a minimum 20% local cash match.
