Elmira-Chemung Transportation Council

ECTC Seeks public comment on the Coordinated Plan Update—Resolution 14-T8

Chemung County is required to have a locally developed Coordinated Transportation Plan that identifies unmet needs and potential projects that are eligible for specific Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding.  For example, this fall NYSDOT intends to release a project solicitation for three years of FTA Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility funding aimed at increasing the mobility of seniors and individuals with disabilities. ECTC will review projects that support capital (busses), operating assistance, and mobility management, then forward recommendations on to the State. All potential projects must be included in the Plan Update that was developed by the mobility management team in Chemung County with input from members of the Chemung County Coordinated Transportation Committee.

New! Opportunity to Carpool to Work -- 511NY Southern Tier Rideshare

The new 511NY Southern Tier Rideshare program is a way to find people who can carpool with you to work.  It is a free and convenient ridematching service that helps people save money and find greener commute alternatives, such as carpooling. The project is supported by Chemung and Steuben Counties, the New York State Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Administration to provide free commuter and traveler information.

ECTC releases 2013-2018 Transportation Improvement Program

The Federal transportation laws require that a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), consistent with the ECTC Long Range Plan, be developed. It must contain the capital and non-capital transportation projects proposed for funding under Title 23 (highways) and Title 49 (transit) laws. The TIP represents the choices for the use of Federal transportation funds in the Elmira urbanized area that are presented to the public for their review. It consists of a listing of projects being considered for implementation in the County for a five-year period in each of several Federal-Aid funding categories. Projects that are proposed for inclusion in the TIP are evaluated and implementation priorities are developed based on project needs, local priorities, funding availability, and project readiness for implementation.
