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.
