The 2040 Transportation Policy Plan 2020 Update (TPP) presents the Metropolitan Council’s policies and plans to guide development of the region’s transportation system. The TPP must be consistent with the regional vision set forth in Thrive MSP 2040 and describe how the transportation system will be developed and operate to support Thrive MSP goals.
The Met Council embarks on a major update once every 10 years that aligns with updates to the Regional Development Guide (Thrive MSP 2040). In between, we put together minor updates. This is a minor update that includes recent small changes to regional transportation investments and revenues, new travel trends data, results of recently completed studies and projects, and keeps the Metropolitan Planning Organization in federal compliance.
