Metro is the federally mandated metropolitan planning organization designated by the governor to develop an overall transportation plan and to program federal funds. Comprised of transportation representatives from across the region, JPACT recommends priorities and develops plans for the region. The Metro Council must adopt the recommendations before they become transportation policies.
JPACT is comprised of 17 members that serve as elected officials or representatives of transportation agencies across the region.
JPACT typically meets on the second Thursday of each month from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at Metro Regional Center. Starting January 2016 JPACT will meet on the third Thursday of each month.
