Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)

The Regional Transportation Plan (RTP or Plan) is a federally-required planning product that lays out the region’s long-term transportation needs and desires over a minimum 20-year time frame. 

Updated every four years, the Plan is a blueprint that helps guide federal funding of investments in the NYMTC planning area based on Council members’ vision for the region and is developed collaboratively with members, agencies, other stakeholders and the public.  The Plan covers all modes of surface transportation from a regional perspective including highways, streets, public transportation, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, goods movement and special needs transportation. In addition, it addresses key transportation activities such as operations and management of the transportation system, safety, security and regional finances.
