Urban Transit Program



 Program Overview


Name of Program: Urban Transit Program (UTP)

Funding: The Urban Transit Program encompasses funding administered by the Office of Transit for transit service in Ohio’s urbanized areas with populations of 50,000 or greater.

Program Goal and Brief Description: The Program goals are to facilitate the most efficient and effective use of both Federal and State Funds in the provision of transportation services. The small urban transit systems receive state funds to leverage federal dollars and the large eight transit systems receive federal funds allocated by the Ohio Department of Transportation.

Application Process: See the Program Criteria and Application Instructions below for more details on the types of funding assistance available, program requirements, and deadlines.
