Thank you to all those that shared input on the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan. The comment period ended April 27, 2020 and the Transportation Policy Board will review and take action on the 2045 Plan on May 4, 2020.
What does the future of transportation look like?
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is working to develop the 2045 Plan, a long-range Regional Transportation Plan to address transportation needs over the next 25 years in Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties. This multimodal plan includes a variety of transportation modes including driving, walking, biking, transit, and emerging technologies.
What is CAMPO?
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties. MPOs are federally required throughout the country in areas with a population of 50,000 or more and are required to produce a 20+ year transportation plan, called a Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), and a four-year planning document called the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
CAMPO is governed by the 21-member Transportation Policy Board (TPB), which is made up of 19 elected officials and a representative from TxDOT and one from Capital Metro. The TPB makes decisions on CAMPO policy and decides how CAMPO funding is allocated.
