The Regional Transportation Plan, a long-range comprehensive plan, is the primary means by which federal and state funds are allocated to the Cape's transportation needs. The Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), a collaboration of local, regional, state, and federal transportation officials, votes on this federally required document, which is compiled and maintained by the staff of the Cape Cod Commission. It is updated every four years.
The Cape Cod MPO is expected to release the Cape Cod 2020 Regional Transportation Plan in early summer 2019 following review and consideration of public comments. Public input is critical in the development of this document and the Cape Cod MPO encourages broad-based participation in the process.
This webpage will include announcements of public meetings and workshops.

The Regional Policy Plan (RPP) outlines a coherent set of planning policies and objectives to guide development on Cape Cod and to protect its resources. The RPP was first adopted in 1991 and amended in 1996, 2002 and 2009. The Cape Cod Commission is in the process of updating the RPP.
