Frequently Asked Questions
What is an MPO?
An MPO is an agency established by federal law to provide local input for urban transportation planning. Communities exceeding 50,000 residents receive federal funds to provide transportation planning. MPOs must provide comprehensive, coordinated, and continuous transportation planning for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods. The planning must align with the region’s larger economic, environmental, and social goals. The transportation planning process emphasizes accessibility to a plethora of transportation options as well as meaningful public involvement.
