The Transportation Alternatives Program provides funding to municipalities for transportation improvements, which includes: transit, transportation equity, safe routes to school, multi-use trails, and supporting transit dependent groups residing in low-income areas. This program requires a 20% non-federal local match. Funds are made available to the State through the FHWA and are administered by CTDOT
