Long-Range Planning

RTP 2050: Moving South Jersey Forward

RTP 2050 serves as the current regional transportation plan (RTP) for the SJTPO region. Its main purpose is to lay out the long-term vision for the region’s transportation network, looking out over a horizon of a little less than 30 years out to 2050. It includes goals, both long and short-range strategies as well as projects and programs that will enable the region to achieve this long-term vision. The RTP 2050 is one of the Core Products of the SJTPO and is a requirement for any metropolitan planning area to receive federal transportation funds.

RTP 2050: Moving South Jersey Forward

Whether you realize it or not, during the course of your day, you are on the move, dependent on the transportation network to get you where you need to go. Whether you go to school or work, go to a doctor’s appointment, go grocery shopping, or any other of a multitude of life activities, you will more than likely need a good transportation system to engage in this activity. Transportation is a vital component of daily life. Part of SJTPO’s role is to create an accessible and safe transportation system while educating the region’s public about how much transportation matters. Let’s keep Moving South Jersey Forward!

Further, for the region to receive federal funding, there must be a long-range regional transportation plan in place. The plan details the ways the region aims to invest in the transportation system. It identifies the region’s long-term needs and the policies, strategies, and projects that will address those needs. The current plan, RTP 2050, guides how over $5 billion in federal transportation funds will be spent in the region over the next 30 years.
