2024 RTP Guidelines Update

Regional Transportation Plans (RTPs) are prepared by regional agencies to identify a 20-year vision for transportation priorities and investments. RTPs are developed by Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and Regional Transportation Planning Agencies (RTPAs) every four or five years in cooperation with FHWA, FTA, Caltrans, and other stakeholders, including system users. The purpose of the RTP is to establish regional goals, identify present and future needs, deficiencies, and constraints, analyze potential solutions, estimate available funding, and propose investments.
