Regional Transportation Plan

The Houston-Galveston Area Council 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is a document that identifies the Region's transportation needs, goals, and policies over the next 25 years. The RTP sets the framework for a balanced and forward thinking system with the identification of major investment strategies supporting traditional modes, such as roadway improvements, and alternative modes, such as mass transit, bicycle and pedestrian facilities. With the assistance of transportation planners, engineers, elected officials and the public, the RTP document helps to identify transportation facilities and services needed to support the Region's anticipated growth using available resources.
