All Programs and their associated funding are listed in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) which is revised by the Policy Committee on an annual basis. Programs typically have dedicated funding streams. For instance, the Transportation Enhancement Program is allotted a certain amount of federal money each year. Projects funded by this program must meet certain criteria. Criteria for funding vary from program to program.
The SPATS Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) contains all approved federally funded transportation projects within the Spartanburg County urban area.
Eligible TAP projects include bike facilities, pedestrian facilities, trails, safe routes to school projects, and streetscapes in downtown or historic districts.
SPATS works with various organizations to connect destinations with infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians.
