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 lower New York State -the five boroughs of New York City , Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island , and Rockland , Westchester and Putnam counties in the Lower Hudson Valley . The NYMTC region encompasses an area of 2,440 square miles and a population of 11.3 million, approximately 65% of New York State 's population.

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.
