‘Mission and Purpose

Transportation is not just being able to get from point A to point B. It involves a comprehensive planning process. Transportation Planning includes important components such as air quality, alternative modes of transportation, improvements to current roadways, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. But most importantly, it involves the public.

The MPO oversees the expenditure of federal transit funds and works closely with the State and municipalities that make up Broward County. Each year, the MPO evaluates and approves proposed surface transportation improvement projects, while providing a forum for interagency cooperation and public input into transportation funding and prioritized decision.

As Broward County continues to experience rapid growth, the MPO plays a critical role in the community as the board that empowers interested persons to speak in a unified manner to their state and federal legislators about transportation needs and concerns.
To do so, the MPO places special emphasis on providing equal access to transportation planning choices through outreach public initiatives.’
