The TSPLOST or Transportation Investment Act (TIA) process is a mechanism for Georgia voters to enact a regional sales tax for transportation purposes. The law allows a region to implement up to one percent sales tax to fund transportation projects, such as pavement, road, bridge, safety, transit, bicycle and pedestrian.

The current TSPLOST revenue collection began in the Southern Georgia region in October 2018 after a majority of voters in the 18-county Southern Georgia region passed the referendum to initiate the collection of a one-cent transportation sales tax. Thus far, the 2018 Southern Georgia TIA has collected $325 million with $244 million going towards approved projects and $81 million going to local governments for use at their discretion per the investment criteria.
