The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) began with the federal transportation bill signed in July 2012 – Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century. The program is intended to help local sponsors fund community based projects that expand non-motorized travel choices and enhance the transportation experience by improving the cultural, historical and environmental aspects of transportation infrastructure. The program's projects will be eligible for submission to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for funding under the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, also known as the FAST Act.
