Transportation Management Area (TMA) Certification Review


No less than once every four years, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) must certify that each metropolitan planning organization (MPO) serving a transportation management area (TMA) – a designation by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) of an urbanized area with a population over 200,000– is carrying out the metropolitan planning process in adherence with federal statutes and regulations. FHWA, FTA, and other federal partners conduct a review of the metropolitan planning process within each TMA and jointly issue this certification on behalf of the USDOT Secretary, in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 134(k)(5) and 49 U.S.C. 5303.

2019 TMA Certification Review

Towards the end of March 2019, FHWA and FTA, and other federal partners, will be conducting a TMA Certification Review of the Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). In addition, various partner agencies will be involved in the review process, including the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT), Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA), West Memphis MPO, and local member jurisdictions.
