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 comprises 17 members that serve as elected officials or representatives of transportation agencies across the region.
JPACT typically meets on the third Thursday of each month from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. through online Zoom meetings. Hybrid meetings, where members can attend in person or online, will take place once per quarter in the Metro Regional Center council chamber.
