MPO Regional Coordination and Best Practices Research Project

The Tampa Bay region has a history of cooperation related to regional transportation planning and coordination responsibilities. The Transportation Management Area (TMA) Leadership Group, the Chairs Coordinating Committee (CCC), and TBARTA, were all created to facilitate regional planning and programming processes, which at times, have not always aligned in their goals and priorities. While over the past few years, measures to improve efficiency and reduce duplication in effort have been implemented, there is a need to further examine the regional dynamics of Tampa Bay, and explore the potential for updating the regional transportation planning coordination structure.

The MPO Regional Coordination and Best Practices Research project will look realistically and comprehensively at the ways regional coordination are conducted across the Tampa Bay region (Hernando, Citrus, Pasco, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Sarasota, Manatee, and Polk Counties), as well as:

  • Clearly define what successful regional coordination means for Tampa Bay;
  • Identify the barriers to its execution through available empirical evidence;
  • Develop several implementable scenarios based on an examination of nation-wide best practices for regional transportation planning, and;
  • Outline the singular, preferred framework for improving regional coordination and responsibility in Tampa Bay, with effective mechanisms for providing consistent, relevant information to elected officials as well as the public.

Options identified through research will include: merger of the MPOs in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco into a single MPO; and a no-build option.

The project is expected to be completed by December 2018.
