About Us
The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Charlotte Urban Area. Federal legislation requires Urban Areas with populations larger than 50,000 to have an MPO, whose primary function is to carry out the transportation planning process among the member jurisdictions within its established planning area boundary.

More information about the membership, governance and structure of the CRTPO, as well as the establishment of the Urban Area, can be found by exploring the other webpages in the About Us section of this website.

The 2055 Metropolitan Transportation Plan

The Metropolitan Transportation Plan, or MTP, is a plan that documents the region’s vision for the future and establishes goals, objectives, and transportation priorities over the next 20+ years to help achieve that vision. This plan considers all surface transportation modes (driving, bicycling, walking, riding transit, freight movement) while also thinking about impacts to the environment, the economy, public health, and overall quality of life. It also identifies ways to fund needed projects, prioritizes how funding is spent, and establishes metrics to measure if we are moving in the right direction.

The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization, or CRTPO, is currently updating the MTP for the Charlotte Region, which covers all of Iredell and Mecklenburg counties and a portion of Union County.

Beyond 77
What does it mean to go Beyond 77?

As the primary north-south corridor through Charlotte, the 68-mile stretch of I-77 between Statesville and the State Line is essential to our community. However, this corridor is greater than the interstate itself. It is a network of connections that are critical to mobility throughout our region. The Beyond 77 study took place from 2019-2021 - it identifies strategies and solutions the CRTPO Beyond 77 Coalition may utilize to advance mobility for all users.

Beyond 77 is a plan created with resident input and support, intended to address the transportation needs in our planning area. Click the link below to review the plan's recommended strategies and solutions and see more information on the forthcoming Beyond 77 Coalition.

Connect Beyond

CONNECT Beyond will define a bold regional transit vision and plan that provides real mobility solutions and opportunities for residents and visitors across two states and 12 counties. Reliable transportation options provide access to jobs, education, medical facilities and services, and serve as the foundation to our region’s continued economic competitiveness and quality of life.
