Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program





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.

Transportation Alternatives Call for Project Concepts February 2022 Webinar Recording

Starting in 2020, Project Concepts became a requirement prior to application. This allows for eligibility determination and feedback from KDOT staff prior to submitting a full application.

Project sponsors within the Urbanized areas of the Wichita and Kansas City metropolitan regions are not eligible to apply for TA funding through KDOT. These regions receive their own portion of TA funds directly from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), which they program independently of this call for projects.
Non-urbanized areas of WAMPO and MARC regions are eligible to apply beginning in the FFY23-24 application period. Visit the FHWA HEPGIS mapping tool for more information on FHWA adjusted urban and non-urbanized areas within MPOs
