Mobility 2045

The plan for transportation connectivity in North Central Texas.

A core function of the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is developing and maintaining a metropolitan transportation plan. NCTCOG coordinates with cities, counties, transportation partners, and the public to plan road, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and other mobility improvements in North Texas.

As the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Dallas- Arlington-Fort Worth area, NCTCOG is required to maintain a long-range transportation plan that defines a path for the region’s multimodal transportation system. The plan also guides expenditures of state and federal transportation funds over the next 20-plus years.


Mobility 2045 was adopted as the current Metropolitan Transportation Plan for North Central Texas by the Regional Transportation Council on June 14, 2018. Mobility 2045 is the product of a comprehensive, cooperative, and continuous planning effort. Providing a variety of transportation options now and into the future is essential to creating a high quality of life in the Dallas-Arlington-Fort Worth area.
