Many of you responded to our call for comments to TxDOT regarding the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funds that are intended for bicycling and walking projects. TxDOT’s proposed rules for TAP would have allowed them to transfer funds away from bike/ped projects and use them for other purposes. BikeTexas members took up the call and sent many amazing stories to TxDOT asking them to keep TAP funds for TAP purposes.
Now, we wait. This sort of public process takes a long time, and we don’t expect to hear the outcome any time soon.
Read what some of your fellow Texans shared with TxDOT:
