the 2045 metropolitan transportation plan
Work on our 2045 Plan is well underway.
This update of our long-range document is changing its name to the Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Some of its features and methods are also changing, but the overall concept remains the same as past versions of the plan.
The 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) establishes the vision of Central Florida’s transportation system, including walking, biking, car, bus, train, paratransit, and more. Covering a 20-year period, the MTP identifies current and future needs to reflect the changing dynamics of the region. Projects must be included in the MTP to receive federal funding.
Planning for the future requires significant input from various partners and stakeholders, including the public. Through the public involvement process, we focus on involving local communities and gathering their feedback. Before the board adopts a long range plan, it gives particular consideration to public input as well as the recommendations of the region’s transportation planners.
We want to engage as many Central Floridians as possible in creating a vision for regional transportation in the year 2045. So we’re looking for organizations who want presentations from MetroPlan Orlando staff or those who are hosting community events where we can offer information.
If you have a question or comment or would like a presentation on the 2045 Plan, please contact us at MTP@MetroPlanOrlando.org or send a request to MTP Outreach, MetroPlan Orlando, 250 S. Orange Ave., Suite 200, Orlando, FL 32801.
