METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION

About the Waco MPO

The Waco Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) coordinates transportation planning activities for all of McLennan County. Click here for a map showing the Metropolitan Area Boundary. The Waco MPO is governed by a 20 member Policy Board and informed by a Technical Advisory Committee. 

MPOs were established by the federal government to ensure that transportation decisions within the MPO area are performed in a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative process, and guided by local and public input. MPOs develop long-range transportation plans and program funds for projects and operations. The plans serve as the roadmap for future projects and programs. MPOs also conduct short-range planning and identify projects and funding sources.
