Transportation Policy Board

The Transportation Policy Board was established in 1973 to meet the requirement that urbanized areas with a population of 50,000 or greater must have a transportation planning board to ensure that all regional transportation studies are performed in accordance with local governments’ desires and in conformance with federal and state laws, rules, and regulations. The TPB is comprised of 30 elected and/or appointed public officials from the local governments that have authority for project implementation.  Membership in the TPB also includes local and county elected officials, State Senators, and State Representatives.
