The New York
Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) is an association of
governments and transportation providers, which serves as the
metropolitan planning organization designated for the ten counties of
Established in 1982, NYMTC
provides a collaborative planning forum to address
transportation-related issues from a regional perspective and to plan
for and make decisions on the use of federal transportation funds.
To respond to local needs, NYMTC is comprised of three Transportation Coordinating Committees: New York City TCC, Mid-Hudson TCC and Nassau/Suffolk TCC. These committees recommend sub-regional transportation priorities and provide opportunities for the private sector, general public, local government and other interested stakeholders to become involved in the planning process on a more local level.
