The Cape Cod Commission coordinates transportation planning activities under the guidance of the Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), a collaboration of local, regional, state, and federal officials. The MPO, designated under federal transportation legislation following the 1990 United States Census, meets to review, direct, and vote on aspects and products of the transportation planning process.
The Cape Cod Joint Transportation Committee (CCJTC) is the transportation planning advisory group that reviews, discusses, and votes on recommendations to the Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The Cape Cod Commission's MPO-related work includes:
- the preparation of an annual Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for transportation planning activities;
- an annual update of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and any necessary TIP amendments; and
- the development and implementation of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and the Congestion Management Plan (CMP).
The process by which the MPO solicits public involvement and cooperative decision-making as part of the transportation planning process is detailed in the MPO's Public Participation Plan (PPP).
