Program Information

Federal Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) Phase 1

Description

Announced in September 2016, Phase 1 of the federal government's PTIF program provides $347.2 million over three years (2016-17 to 2018-19), for public transit projects across Alberta. PTIF-funded projects, which also include grants from the Government of Alberta, will support rehabilitation of public transit systems, planning of future system improvements and expansions, enhanced asset management, and system optimization and modernization. Investments under this program will help reduce commute times, cut air pollution, strengthen communities and grow Canada's economy.  The types of projects approved as part of for the final call for Alberta’s Green Transit Incentives Program (GreenTRIP) applications, which closed on August 31, 2016, were expanded to align with those eligible for PTIF. This change provided municipalities with greater flexibility to maximize funding from both programs. Phase 1 of PTIF has been fully subscribed; no new applications are being solicited. Alberta municipalities that have projects which meet the PTIF criteria are working directly with Alberta Transportation to move the projects forward.
