Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)

Overview

Coordinated, long-range transportation planning is critical for the region to grow and evolve in a way that addresses local needs and priorities.  All Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are required to maintain a regional long-range transportation plan and the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) serves as this plan for the Memphis MPO.  To meet Federal regulations, the RTP must:

  • Be updated every four years;
  • Provide a minimum 20-year plan horizon;
  • Identify long-range transportation goals and specific long- and short-range investment strategies across all modes of transportation to support meeting those goals;
  • Support regional land use and economic development policies and plans;
  • Demonstrate fiscal constraint for all funded projects;
  • Demonstrate air quality conformity; and
  • Reflect a broad set of public and stakeholder input.
