Metropolitan Area Planning (MAP) Forum

In January 2008, NYMTC and the four other area MPOs – the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA); the Housatonic Valley Council of Elected Officials (HVCEO); the South Western Regional Metropolitan Planning Organization (SWRMPO); and the Greater Bridgeport/Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (GB/VMPO) – signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the coordination of planning activities in the three state New York-New Jersey-Connecticut metropolitan region.


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.
