Regional Planning and Expansion Projects

Regional Planning represents the Authority with regional, state, federal, and local agencies and participates in studies and projects throughout the region. This branch also conducts long-range planning which includes guiding system expansion projects through various Federal Funding processes, ridership modeling and identifying future locations for capital expansion projects (fixed-guideway, bus rapid transit, light rail transit, etc.).  This branch also develops and reviews environmental impact analyses as well as historical and archaeological studies as required by State and Federal laws.
