The Transportation Policy Board (TPB) of the Memphis MPO adopted the Livability 2050: Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) on September 12, 2019, and is currently out for final approval by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Adminsitration (FTA), in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The RTP is a multi-modal transportation plan for the region through the year 2050. For the MPO's Planning Area, all transportation improvements to be funded by the state and federal governments are included in the plan.

The major elements of the planning process for the Livability 2050 RTP Update are Engagement, Data Collection, Recommendation Development, and Documentation.
