Transportation Planning

ACOG houses the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Central Oklahoma. MPOs were created through Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1962. Federal funding for transportation projects are channeled through this planning process.

ACOG coordinates all activities of the Regional Transit Authority Task Force. The project, which began nearly a decade ago, will eventually bring regional transit to Central Oklahoma.

ACOG’s popular Bicycle-Pedestrian program includes the state’s first Bike To Work program, which began in 2003.
