Idaho RTAP Program

The Rural Transportation Assistance Program (RTAP) is a federal program established and funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). In Idaho – where a rural lifestyle prevails and mobility in that environment is uniquely challenging - the Idaho RTAP program provides significant and specific support. Idaho RTAP's focus on stimulating mobility in rural areas is also integral to the development and implementation of I-way, Idaho's vision for a statewide system that connects people through an exciting mix of transportation options, giving Idaho an economic and quality-of-life advantage, while keeping our state clean and beautiful.
