Regional Transportation Plan: The RTP is an integrated, multi-modal system plan that provides the overall framework for transportation planning and investment decision making in the region.

2014-2018 Transportation Improvement Program: The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which the Madison Area TPB updates annually, is a coordinated listing of short-range transportation improvement projects anticipated to be undertaken in the next five-year period. The TIP is the mechanism by which the long-range transportation plan is implemented, and represents the transportation improvement priorities of the region.
