The Northwest Rural Planning Organization (RPO) understands the importance of local planning and how land use and planning influences current and future transportation demands. Through the Linking Planning to NEPA process and taking into consideration fiscal constraints, the Transportation Improvement Plan is developed from the Long Range Transportation Plan.

Coordinated Plan Update

The RPO is currently in the process of updating the Coordinated Public Transit-Human Service Transportation Plan.  The purpose of the Coordinated Plan is to identify the needs and gaps in human service transportation for seniors, persons with disabilities, and low income individuals in the Northwest Pennsylvania region.  Human service organizations and the public are invited to participate in the data collection process by completing one of the surveys below:
