Metropolitan Transportation Plan

plan 2040 Survey

The first survey of plan 2040 is now live!

Please fill out the survey (this link will take you to another site) and share it with others who are interested in making known their thoughts on transportation in the Richmond Region.


The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) is a federally-required planning document outlining the transportation improvements and policies to be implemented in the TPO study area. The MTP must include plans for at least the next twenty years, but it also must be updated at least every four years.

The MTP represents a long-term vision of the Richmond Region's transportation systems. The plan represents the culmination of the transportation planning processes of each locality and considers all modes of transportation, including highways, roads, bus, rail, bicycle, pedestrian and air.


There are many components to the MTP, most of which are required by state and federal regulations for regional transportation planning.

Any transportation related project that receives federal funds and is categorized as "regionally significant" must be included in the MTP along with an estimate of the amount of funding available from all sources, including local bond issues. The list of proposed transportation improvements is then matched against the estimate of available funds to create a final, "financially constrained" MTP.

Process for Developing

Coordination among the localities, state and federal transportation agencies, and interested community groups is an integral part of the planning process.

The development of the MTP relies on a proactive community outreach effort to include the voice of the public. Whether you live, work, or play in the Richmond Region, your voice is important in helping the Richmond Regional TPO identify the Region's transportation needs.

Ongoing Updates

In addition, the MTP can be amended at any time to account for new and modified transportation projects and funding sources. The entire array of proposed projects contained in the MTP is evaluated by computer models to ensure that, when implemented, these projects do not deteriorate the regionís air quality below accepted standards adopted for this area.
