The agency said in a statement that its TA program provides funding for a variety of alternative transportation projects, which includes: the construction of pedestrian and bicycle facilities; infrastructure for non-driver access to public transportation; projects that enhance safety and mobility for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders; projects that improve scenic or environmental assets in the state; plus Safe-Routes-to-School initiatives.
