NYMTC LAUNCHES NEW, INTERACTIVE WEBSITE FOR
PUBLIC ENCOURAGED TO HELP PLAN THE REGION’S TRANSPORTATION FUTURE
The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) is launching a new interactive
ideas, provide feedback and participate in the development of the 2040 Regional
Transportation Plan. Input on topics ranging from traffic congestion to transit to biking to
moving goods can be offered for local communities, New York City, the lower Hudson Valley,
Long Island, and for the region as a whole.
When developed, NYMTC’ 2040 Plan will lay out a longrange framework for maintaining and
improving the region’ transportation system: its roads, bridges, freight and mass transit
facilities, and its bicycle and pedestrian networks. It will ultimately identify the transportation
improvement concepts, projects and policy recommendations that can address the region’
longterm growth challenges and needs –an initial step to bringing federal transportation
dollars into the area.
Updated every four years, NYMTC’ Plan will be the product of a metropolitan planning process
that seeks to bring together as many of the region’ governmental entities, its business
community and its residents as possible to focus on future transportation needs. NYMTC is a
regional council of governments that is the metropolitan planning organization for New York
City, Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley, enabling federal transportation funds to flow
into the region.
In addition to the new interactive website, NYMTC will hold a series of open house meetings
over the coming months to gather ideas from the people who live and work here about what
transportation projects and programs they’ like to see put in place through 2040, and beyond.
