The Transportation Incentive Program (TIP) and the Mass Transportation Benefit Program (MTBP) are federally-subsidized benefits that cover vanpools and all transit in the Hampton Roads area, including the local and express buses, light rail and ferry services. The benefit currently pays up to $265/month. Participants can save as much at $2,000/year on commuting expenses! Vanpools are also eligible to receive TIP and MTBP monies.
