The SJTPO is beginning the process to update the federally-required Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The RTP identifies the long-range vision for the regional transportation system, outlines the goals, strategies, and projects over a 30-year period, and details anticipated funding. The RTP will guide how over $5 billion in federal transportation funds will be spent in the region over the next 30 years.
Four public meetings will be held (view RTP webpage for meeting times and locations). If you are unable to attend, please provide input on SJTPO’s existing RTP goals and strategies, as well as ideas for new ones. To do so, please visit the Public Comment webpage. Your input will guide the direction of the RTP, scheduled for release in July 2020.

Agenda items include approving an amendment to the FY 2019 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), adopting the 2019 Public Involvement Plan (PIP), and adopting the Staff Replacement Plan, among other topics. The full agenda is available, here.
Last year, Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Transportation, announced an initiative called “Commitment to Communities.” The initiative highlighted the NJDOT’s pledge to ensure local governments succeed in delivering transportation projects that improve safety and quality of life in New Jersey communities without unduly burdening local property taxpayers. Ms. Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti informed stakeholders that the initiative is succeeding and is an important element in providing superior multi-modal mobility to millions of New Jersey residents every day.
