Transportation Planning for the Palm Beaches

Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)

Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)

The Southeast Florida Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) identifies the most significant transportation investments needed to meet growing travel demands throughout the Southeast Florida region (Broward, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach Counties). 

SEFTC facilitates transportation planning by engaging the public and fostering strong partnerships between the three MPOs with other agencies, local governments and communities.  One of SEFTC's most important responsibilities is developing and implementing its Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) in coordination with other regional and local plans, while moving toward an agreed-upon vision for transportation in southeast Florida. The RTP is updated every five years to adapt to population changes of the region.  Since 2013, the Palm Beach MPO has been a strategic partner in the development of our region's 2040 RTP.  The RTP is consistent with the Palm Beach MPO's adopted Directions 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) for Palm Beach County. The RTP is also consistent with the 2040 LRTPs adopted by the Broward MPO and the Miami-Dade TPO for their respective counties. For more information, go to SEFTC.org.

The 2040 RTP was adopted on October 27, 2015 by the Southeast Florida Transportation Council (SEFTC). Click on the image to download the document.

Important elements of the 2040 RTP include:

  • Estimates of growth over the next 25 years: Estimate the number of residents and jobs that will come to southeast Florida by 2040.
  • Goals for accommodating growth: Plan for anticipated growth to effectively manage limited financial resources for transportation system investments.
  • Regionally significant investments: Prioritize projects that better meet the goals of the 2040 RTP.
  • Funding to implement the 2040 RTP: Develop a financial plan that outlines anticipated funding sources and mechanisms to implement strategies of the 2040 RTP.
  • A complete regional picture: Ensure that the 2040 RTP addresses anticipated transportation needs for all stakeholder groups throughout the region.

The process for the new 2045 Regional Transportation Plan began in Spring 2017, with adoption in June of 2020.
