Innovation, Coordination, and Enhancement (ICE)

Innovation, Coordination, and Enhancement (ICE)

The Innovation, Coordination, and Enhancement (ICE) program is a competitive funding program, established as part of the 2008 Mass Transit Reform Legislation. The program provides operating and capital assistance to enhance the coordination and integration of public transportation and to develop and implement innovations to improve the quality and delivery of public transportation. Projects funded through this program advance the vision and goals of the RTA by providing reliable and convenient transit services and enhancing efficiencies through effective management, innovation and technology.
