The performance-based Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) provides a broad vision for the regional transportation system for the next two decades, addressing freeways and other highways, streets, transit, airports, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, freight, demand management, system management including intelligent transportation systems (ITS), and safety. The Regional Transportation Plan - Final, 11/25/03, was the result of a major planning effort initiated in 2001 and completed in late 2003, when it received unanimous support from the Transportation Policy Committee and approval from the MAG Regional Council. It has also passed the federally-required air quality conformity tests. Since that time, updates to the plan have been prepared. A 2035 Regional Transportation plan and Executive Summary were approved by the MAG Regional Council in January, 2014 and are now available on-line.
A schedule or "program" for specific projects being implemented (undergoing design, right of way acquisition and/or construction, or capital acquisitions for transit) in the next three to five years is provided in the separately-bound MAG Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
