The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is a federally required long-term planning document listing the transportation improvements and policies to be implemented in the MPO area. The LRTP is updated at least every four years and must cover at least the next twenty years. The Broward MPO Board unanimously adopted the 2035 LRTP that sets the framework for a balanced and forward thinking system with investments toward alternative modes such as mass transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and smart growth policies. The Broward 2035 LRTP, branded as "Transformation," is the Broward MPO's plan for change. The Broward MPO has now started the process of updating the LRTP, known as Commitment 2040.
