Transportation Alternatives (TA) is a federal program with enormous local support that, since 1991, has funded community-based projects that expand travel choices and enhance the transportation experience by improving the cultural, historic, aesthetic and environmental aspects of our transportation infrastructure.
In particular, TA is the nation's largest funding source for trail, walking and bicycling projects. Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) has for decades been the nation's leading champion of the TA program. As such, RTC hosts the National Transportation Alternatives Clearinghouse (NTAC) through a cooperative agreement with the Federal Highway Administration.
