The Regional Transportation Options Plan (RTOP) plans for the most effective application of Transportation Options (TO) programs and services to address changing demands for transportation in our metropolitan region. TO includes the promotion of walking, biking, transit, ridesharing and telecommuting; and focuses on ways to use the existing transportation infrastructure more efficiently by providing a balance of mobility options for the various types of trips people take.
Planning Process and Integration
The regional planning process was a collaborative effort led by the Central Lane MPO and point2point, with ongoing coordination with the Cities of Eugene, Springfield and Coburg, Lane County and Lane Transit District. The RTOP will be effectively integrated into the Central Lane MPO Regional Transportation Plan policies, objectives, strategies and projects to meet the long-term transportation needs of the community.
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is also developing Oregon’s first Transportation Options Plan. The State TO Plan is one of several statewide transportation mode and topic plans that further refine and implement the Oregon Transportation Plan (OTP). The State TO Plan establishes a vision and policy guidance that integrates transportation options in local, regional, and state transportation planning, programming, and investment. The RTOP complements the Oregon Transportation Options Plan and will further advance TO programs and services in the region.
