Long-Range Planning

Transportation Matters – A Plan for South Jersey

Transportation Matters serves as the official regional transportation plan for the SJTPO region, providing a framework for guiding investment decisions over a 24-year period. 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.

The SJTPO is beginning the process to update the federally-required Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).

2050 RTP

The RTP will guide how over $5 billion in federal transportation funds will be spent in the region over the next 30 years. While much of this will be spent on maintaining the system, getting input from the public on the goals and strategies that guide this investment is essential.

Four public meetings will be held (information below). 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.
