Metropolitan Transportation Plan Policy Bundle

Metropolitan Transportation Plan Policy Bundle Voluntary Measures

Mobility 2040, the region’s current Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), recommendations consist of policies, programs, and projects that reflect regional priorities and support Mobility 2040 goals. However, the construction of infrastructure projects alone cannot achieve the goals of Mobility 2040.


To encourage the development of alternative, strategic solutions, Mobility 2040 includes a voluntary list of policies that local governments and transportation agencies can choose to adopt. These policies aim to address issues that affect transportation in the region, and cover a wide range of topics. By voluntarily adopting 50 percent of these policies, participating agencies will receive an offset of local funds in federal transportation projects in the form of Transportation Development Credits (TDCs).
