CDOT Updating Transit Funding Distribution Process

January 28, 2016 - Statewide Transportation Plan - Public Comment Period begins today.

DENVER – The Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) Division of Transit and Rail (DTR) is seeking public comment on how federal transit funds are managed and distributed within the state. 

CDOT recently eliminated several outdated rules and regulations regarding the funding disbursement when it developed a State Management Plan for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).  Streamlining the process is designed to facilitate transparency for transit agencies, other government entities and the general public.

“As part of the federal requirement to develop a State Management Plan on funding management and distribution, we decided to incorporate all of our FTA and FASTER funding policies into this single document,” said DTR Director Mark Imhoff.  “As part of eliminating the rules, we committed to a more formal process, including public comment.”  

The 30-day comment period on the State Management Plan begins Thursday, Jan. 28, and concludes on Friday, Feb. 26.  Comments should be emailed to Rob Andresen-Tenace at [email protected] or by calling (303) 757-9766.
