Transportation is the key to connecting and moving people, goods and services. Whether it is getting to work by car, biking to the store, or moving freight, transportation is at the forefront of ensuring a high quality of life for the Central Ohio region. As a metropolitan planning organization (MPO), the U.S. Department of Transportation recognizes MORPC as the official transportation planning agency for the mid-Ohio region.
At MORPC, our transportation planning is responsive to the changing social, economic, environmental and demographic conditions of the Central Ohio region. Some of the biggest transportation issues facing our region are congestion, maintaining mobility and growth in the region, balancing the need for travel with the quality of life in communities, providing accessible travel options, sustainable funding to maintain and expand our transportation system, and our environment.
