Programming

Charles Bradsky presented on the recommendation for transit projects in the 2022-2026 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).


Group I

There is $12,400,200 in funding for Planning Funding Request 5307. However, we are over-programmed by

$7.7 million in 2025. We are also over-programmed by $7.6 million in 2026. Funds for 5337 are not constrained but are to be used for Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD). NIRPC is using 2021 funding amount information because legislators have not passed a highway funding bill. The majority of busses were purchased using 5339 and 5310 funds. GPTC’s request for six large electric busses for $2.2 million a year were not purchased. INDOT moved the deadline project out until March 8. Therefore, a meeting will be held next week with GPTC and NICTD to discuss their projects.


Group II

NIRPC purchased busses in group II using CMAQ/STBG funds in 2024, 2025, and 2026. TransPorte would receive $259K and Michigan City Transit would get $731K in funding.


On motion by George Topoll and second by Kay Nelson, the Technical Planning Committee will recommend the Group II transit funds projects to The Commission.


Next Meeting

The next Technical Planning Committee (TPC) meeting is slated for Tuesday, March 9, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at the NIRPC offices. A additional special meeting will be held on March 5, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. to discuss Group I Transit Expansion projects.


The meeting concluded at 10:20 a.m.

GPTC NIRPC2700532

This project would fund pilot operations and facility improvements for a rapid bus service focusing on the University Park area, connecting to downtown Gary via the Grant Street corridor and to downtown Hobart and extreme western Portage via Ridge Road and/or Old Ridge Road. This project is born out of GPTC's Title VI service standards and Livable Broadway Regional Plan, along with the transit plan for the City of Hobart. Both GPTC-approved documents identified service standards for Rapid Bus service, with the latter document indicating that the Grant Street corridor has the highest ridership activity outside of the Broadway corridor. The Hobart Transit Plan identified service options connecting downtown Hobart with University Park (and GPTC's Broadway Metro Express). These service targets and ideas would be further studied, and passenger facilities would be proposed based on ridership activity projections. The target Rapid Bus frquency is between 20-30

minutes and feeder service will be introduced as well.
