The Transportation Planning Program was established in all metropolitan and rural planning organizations to promote federal, state, and local transportation objectives. Key focus issues include updating long-range transportation plans, adopting Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs), the commonwealth's Twelve Year Program (TYP), and air quality conformity determinations where needed. Responsibilities focus on promoting transportation projects that provide for the maintenance and/or restoration of transportation infrastructure, providing a safer environment for the traveling public, and enhancing personal mobility and the movement of goods.
