TRIP Transit Ridership Incentive Program

Program Overview:

The Transit Ridership Incentive Program (TRIP) is a new statewide grant program dedicated to improving transit’s regional connectivity in urban areas with a population in excess of 100,000 and reducing barriers to transit use by supporting low income and zero fare programming.  The TRIP program was created by the passing of House Bill 1414 in the 2020 General Assembly session. Currently, the Virginia Department of Rail and Transportation is seeking feedback and performing outreach on the program. Below you will find a comprehensive list of relevant resources. This webpage will be updated as the development process continues.

The TRIP application is predicted to open in Spring/Summer 2021.
