Tribal Transit

American Indians living on tribal lands face challenges accessing medical care, employment opportunities, schools, and other crucial resources. The National Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) provides a comprehensive list of resources on best practices for providing transportation service on tribal land.[1] Funding for tribal transportation programs comes largely from the federal government through the Public Transportation on Indian Reservations Program (Tribal Transit Program (TTP), which began in 2005. [2] TTP consists of a $30 million formula grant program and a $5 million competitive grant program. All federally recognized tribes are eligible for the funding.
