SRPEDD Announces an abbreviated 15-day Public Comment Period and a Remote Public Meeting to hear comments for an amendment to the FFY2020 year of the FFY2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) concerning GATRA transit funds.

March 27, 2020 – There is a proposed amendment, named Amendment #4, to the FFY2020 year of the FFY2020-2024 TIP that concerns a Workforce Transit Grant to the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA), for an expansion of the MassTransit Pilot Program GATRA Go, into nighttime hours to Patriot Place. This is an app-based transportation service, much like Uber.

The TIP is the programming document listing all federally funded road and bridge projects in the region and all transit projects for both the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SRTA) and the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA). The TIP lists all highway and transit projects in the 27 SRPEDD communities to be funded through the year 2024. 
A public meeting to hear comments and concerns on these amendments will be held remotely on Thursday, April 2 at 4 PM based on the state of emergency in Massachusetts. Everyone is welcome to attend, ask questions and offer comments. The meeting will be conducted through the Microsoft ZOOM APP.
