This current transportation plan for the Greater Memphis Region was adopted by the Transportation Policy Board (TPB) of the Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) on January 28, 2016. The plan known as Livability 2040: Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is now being updated with a new horizon year of 2050.
Long term planning for transportation infrastructure is critical for the growth and development of a region in a way that is consistent with the goals and objectives of the community. As conditions change, these long range plans must be updated periodically. To meet Federal regulations, the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) will do all of the following:
The major elements of the planning process for the Livability 2050 RTP Update are Engagement, Data Collection, Recommendation Development, and Documentation.
The Memphis MPO has developed a public survey that is available for both English and Spanish speakers. You can help shape the direction of this update by taking part in this quick short survey to help ensure the plan is reflective of the needs and desires of the region.
Improving the livability and quality of life of our communities is important to the region. The Memphis MPO recently engaged with elected officials, partner agencies, and local residents to create a YouTube video series to share the importance of transportation on the region’s quality of life and creating livable communities.
