Resources by Mode

Sometimes, a project fits neatly into a single mode of transportation. A roadway is a roadway; a railroad is a railroad. The Bureau has helped deliver road, rail, transit, airport, and port projects. We have friendly staff with specialized experience, and we're ready to help you.

Other times, a project doesn't fit as neatly. Is an intermodal transfer facility a road project, a rail project, or a port project? The answer is, it doesn't matter what label you apply; the Bureau can help you deliver it. Reach out to us, and we'll talk through how our various programs and products fit the various elements of your project.

Learn more about what we can do for your project by selecting the appropriate mode or modes below. Then, when you're ready, contact us, and we'll get started building something great together. We look forward to working with you.

  • Airports
    • Projects eligible under the Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) statute (49 U.S.C. 40117(a)) – this can include terminal buildings, airfield construction projects (runways, taxiways, aprons, etc.), airport entrance roads, land acquisition, airfield rescue and firefighting (ARFF) facilities, airport people mover systems, and many other projects.  Projects generally eligible under FAA’s Airport Improvement Program (AIP) are also eligible.
    • Please note that since exclusive use facilities (for example, a one operator cargo building) and non-public/revenue generating space in terminal buildings are not PFC eligible, they are also not TIFIA eligible. 
  • Ports
  • Rail
  • Road/Highways/ITS, EV and pedestrian facilities 
  • Transit
    • TIFIA can finance transit capital projects that are eligible for the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) grant programs outlined in Chapter 53 of Title 49. RRIF can finance commuter railroad projects including stations, track, tunnels, bridges, rolling stock, and facilities.
  • Transit-Oriented Development
    • Projects must be within a ½ mile walking distance of a qualifying station/facility. RRIF can finance economic development projects such as commercial and residential development. TIFIA can finance public infrastructure projects, economic development projects that include public infrastructure, and joint development.
