This page is being used to provide the latest information on the Transportation Regional
Incentive Program (TRIP). The 2005 Legislature, as part of a major initiative to improve
growth management planning and the provision of transportation infrastructure, created this
program to help accomplish that objective.
TRIP was created to improve regionally significant transportation facilities in "regional transportation areas". State funds are available throughout Florida to provide incentives for local governments and the private sector to help pay for critically needed projects that benefit regional travel and commerce. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will pay up to 50 percent of the nonfederal share of project costs for public transportation facility projects.

- TRIP JPA - FDOT Letting (updated 11/3/10) - For TRIP projects where the Department will be doing the work. For these types of projects, a third party Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) will also be required if the local match is being deposited into an escrow account. This is required if the amount being deposited is more than $100,000.
- TRIP JPA - Local Letting (updated 7/20/12) - For TRIP projects where a local agency is doing the work and no federal funds are used or plan to be used on the project. Please note that for TRIP projects that will be let locally and involve federal funds, Districts are advised to use the standard Local Agency Program (LAP) Agreement.
