Engagement efforts ensure that future transportation investments reflect the needs, interests, and concerns of the region. As the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for New York City, Long Island, and the lower Hudson Valley, NYMTC studies existing transportation networks, forecasts future needs and pools the planning activities of its member agencies to develop a shared strategic vision for transportation in the region. In this process, it partners with other planning organizations, stakeholders, and the public.
Public Involvement Plan
Under Federal legislation, NYMTC’s Public Involvement Plan (PIP) includes recommendations for better involving the region’s residents and employers in the transportation planning process, and is routinely revised to address changing needs of the region.
