Metropolitan Transportation Planning
William J. Mallett (au)
Federal law requires state and local governments to designate a metropolitan planning org. (MPO) in each urbanized area with a population of 50,000 or more to help plan surface transport. infrastructure and services. There are currently 381 MPOs nationwide.MPOs have generally remained subordinate to state departments of transport. (DoTs) in the planning and selecting of projects using federal surface transport. funds. Moreover, it can be argued that at the metropolitan level MPOs are subordinate to local governments that own and operate many elements of the transport. system, and also control land use planning and zoning.
