The Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) provides a source of funding to assist in the design and implementation of training and technical assistance projects and other support services tailored to meet the needs of transit operators in nonurbanized areas.
Eligible recipients: States, local governments, and providers of rural transit services.
Eligible activities: States may use RTAP funds to support nonurbanized transit activities in four categories: training, technical assistance, research, and related support services.
The State should develop State RTAP activities through a process that provides maximum opportunity for the participation of rural transit operators, both public and private, in identifying and establishing priority areas of need for transportation research, technical assistance, training, and related support services in other than urbanized areas.
