About the Metropolitan Planning Organization and Public Involvement

As the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the NCTCOG Transportation Department and Regional Transportation Council are together responsible for developing, coordinating and allocating funding to transportation plans and related air quality projects.
What is the MPO?

NCTCOG invites and encourages all North Texans, including those traditionally underserved by transportation, to share ideas and opinions. The Public Participation Plan [PDF] details more about how groups and individuals can be involved. Additionally, NCTCOG proactively seeks to educate and engage North Texans in the transportation planning process. It is expected that by 2035, nine million people will call North Texas home. Meeting the mobility needs of today and tomorrow requires coordination and collaboration.
