Transit Strategic Partnerships

Through this program, staff will review innovative transit projects and solutions both from public agencies looking to directly implement service and those seeking partnership with an existing transit provider. Projects submitted by May 31, 2023 will be reviewed and evaluated for the current cycle.
Automated Transportation System Development Study
NCTCOG’s Automated Transportation System (ATS) Initiative is a program to develop ATS networks to move goods and people in urban centers throughout the region. NCTCOG’s consulting firm for the program, Lea+Elliott, recently completed a study that identified existing ATS vehicles, developed guidelines for the elevated guideways and described the present state of technology in the field of dynamic wireless charging. This two-year study was initiated by the RTC, and staff will be presenting the results.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grants
NCTCOG is applying for the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG): Planning Grants Program. This program will provide funding to develop a plan on behalf of the Dallas-Fort Worth region to reduce greenhouse gases and other harmful air pollutants. After developing a plan, eligible entities will be able to pursue funding from the EPA for implementation. Staff will provide details on the program, including the application process.
Regional Scrap Tire Program
To help alleviate environmental and public health nuisances, NCTCOG’s scrap tire program offers ways to reduce the amount of scrap and abandoned tires within the Dallas-Fort Worth region. The program includes education, outreach, technical and legal support, dump site identification, dumping prevention, and enforcement. Staff will provide additional details for public review and comment.
Federal Performance Measures for National Highway System Pavement/Bridge Assets
Federal legislation requires State DOTs to collaborate with MPOs on the recurring evaluation and establishment of condition targets for National Highway System (NHS) pavement and bridge assets, known as PM2 targets. With a new four-year performance period underway, public input is requested on a pending NCTCOG decision to either affirm support for TxDOT’s new statewide PM2 targets or establish separate regional PM2 targets. Staff will provide updates on State and regional PM2 estimates, potential effects of new funding and coordination efforts.
