The region’s transportation system is vital to our economy, our community and our lives. The Regional Transportation Plan is the blueprint that guides investments in the region’s transportation system to reduce congestion, build new sidewalks and bicycle facilities, improve transit service and access to transit and maintain freight access.
One way the region implements the RTP is by investing in transportation projects. As an MPO, Metro convenes a regional discussion and decision on how best to invest regional flexible funds. More

While the plan recognizes that most travel in the region will continue to be by auto, alternatives to driving alone, such as transit, walking and bicycling, are also recognized as important. The RTP provides a vision for new ways to get around, such as commuter rail and vanpools, and includes telecommuting, ridesharing and other programs designed to reduce demand on the transportation system. The policies focus on ensuring that all layers of the region's transportation system work together in the most effective way possible, including the efficient management of the overall system. In addition, the policies recognize the importance of the movement of goods and services to our regional economy.
