Planning Process

NYMTC’s approach to developing its programs is built on the mission and vision which define and guide NYMTC’s transportation planning process, as well as the planning emphasis areas specified by federal regulations. NYMTC’s Regional Transportation Plan (the Plan), developed every four years, is a foundation for the work program. From the Plan, NYMTC compiles a multi-year planning prospectus.

From the RTP to the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the Project Planning and Implementation process, there are several critical steps NYMTC undertakes to ensure the planning process is thorough and focused.
