Plan 2040-NYMTC's New Regional Transportation Plan is currently Under Development
NYMTC’s new Regional Transportation Plan – Plan 2040 – is currently under development. Members of the public were able to contribute to the development process through a series of open-houses held across the region and input opportunities provided through an internet-based public outreach platform, social media and other means during September and October 2012.
Major milestones for Plan 2040 include:
- Completion of a draft document by Mid-April, 2013
- Public comment period on the draft document mid-April to mid-May, 2013
- NYMTC’s Program, Finance & Administration Committee action during the third week of July, 2013
- Council adoption of Plan 2040 by the end of August, 2013
When completed, Plan 2040 will lay out a long-range framework for maintaining and improving the region’s transportation system: its roads, bridges, freight and mass transit facilities, and its bicycle and pedestrian networks. It will identify the transportation improvement concepts, projects and policy recommendations that can address the region’s long-term growth challenges and needs – an initial step to bringing federal transportation dollars into the area.

A proposed amendment to the 2010-2035 Regional Transportation Plan (the Plan), which presents long-range needs, issues and choices to guide the regional planning process. The amendment proposes to include the Tappan Zee Hudson River Crossing Project in the fiscally-constrained element of the 2010-2035 Plan. This project has been included in the regional emissions analysis contained in the draft Transportation Conformity Determination.
