Metropolitan Area Planning (MAP)

NYMTC has entered into agreement with eight surrounding MPOs and councils of government in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania to better coordinate planning activities in the multi-state metropolitan region. The other parties to the agreement include the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority, the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission in Pennsylvania, the Orange County Transportation Council in New York State, and the Western Connecticut Council of Governments, the Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments, the Connecticut Metropolitan Council of Governments, the South Central Regional Council of Governments, and the Lower Connecticut River Valley Council of Governments, all in coastal Connecticut.


The MOU includes efforts toward achieving, wherever possible, general consistency of plans through informal communication and document exchange and participation to the extent practicable in the transportation planning process of the other MPOs.
