Long-Range Planning

RTP 2050: Moving South Jersey Forward

RTP 2050 serves as the current regional transportation plan for South Jersey. Adopted in January 2021, its purpose is to educate the public on why transportation planning matters. It includes both long and short-range strategies and actions leading to the development of an integrated transportation system that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods.

RTP 2050: Moving South Jersey Forward

Whether you realize it or not, during the course of your day, you are on the move, dependent on the transportation network to get you where you need to go. Part of SJTPO’s role is to create an accessible and safe transportation system, while educating the region’s public about how much transportation matters. Let’s keep Moving South Jersey Forward!

Further, for the region to receive federal funding, there must be a long-range regional transportation plan in place. The long-range plan details the ways the region aims to invest in the transportation system. It identifies the region’s long term needs and the policies, strategies, and projects that will address those needs. The current long-range plan, RTP 2050, guides how over $5 billion in federal transportation funds will be spent in the region over the next 30 years.
