  • What is CTIPS?

    The CTIPS (California Transportation Improvement Program System) database is used to support the business of Transportation Programming. CTIPS is used to capture the STIP/TCRP/BOND and SHOPP documents in an automated repository, which would be used to generate FTIP documents and the FSTIP. CTIPS provides a common database shared by Caltrans District Offices, Headquarters, RTPAs, FHWA, and MPOs. Specifically, CTIPS is used by these agencies to manage the programming and allocation of funds for STIP/TCRP/BOND, SHOPP and local projects.
