Planning Capacity Building Program

The objective of this project is to improve transportation planning and decision making in metropolitan and rural areas. Under co-sponsorship of the FTA and FHWA, the Planning Capacity Building Program provides training, technical assistance, and support to transit operators, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), state departments of transportation (DOTs), and other stakeholders to improve transportation planning and decision making in metropolitan and rural areas. The project involves identifying, assessing, and responding to the information and training needs of planning participants. The Planning Capacity Building Program includes products and services such as, the development and upgrading the website containing case studies and effective practices on a variety of topics, sponsoring and facilitating peer-exchange workshops, enabling planning partners to learn from each other, and developing briefing books on selected planning topics.
