Regional Transportation Plan - Moving Forward

The Regional Transportation Plan (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.

Addenda to the Regional Transportation Plan

To assist NYMTC member agencies with meeting funding eligibility requirements, NYMTC has adopted the plans as amendments to Moving Forward.

Resilience Improvement Plan Addendum

The Resilience Improvement Plan Addendum addresses the immediate and long-range planning activities and investments of the metropolitan planning organization with respect to resilience of the surface transportation system. This systemic approach includes a risk-based assessment of vulnerabilities of transportation assets and systems to current and future weather events and natural disasters. It is consistent with and complements the State and local mitigation plans required under section 322 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5165) and meets the requirements of 23 U.S.C 176(e).
