Transportation Planning Services (TPS):

Who We Are

Transportation plays a vital role in today’s economy, providing access to jobs, education, shopping and recreation. It is an integral part of our mobile society influencing urban development, economic vitality, quality of life and national defense.

This includes the region’s $10 billion long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), as well as more than $20 million in annual federal grants for local transportation improvements by partnering with the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.
