Why We Do It
Metropolitan Transportation Plans (MTPs) establish a long-range vision for improvements in our transportation systems and infrastructure. They consider and incorporate everything from biking and pedestrian trails (non-motorized), to traffic congestion and public transit.
Mid-Michigan is at the intersection of major highways, rail lines, trail systems, waterways, and an international airport, all of which affect our economy, the environment, and the safety and accessibility of our community members. The MTP plays a critical role in guiding transportation projects that will integrate these characteristics and concerns.
Moving Mid-Michigan is the Greater Lansing region's 25-year outlook on the specific transportation needs in our area. As a cohesive community, we are always looking to move our people, move forward, and move in the right direction.
