The Evansville MPO Policy Committee has adopted final drafts of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), Conformity Determination, and the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) which guide the region’s decision making related to road, transit, bicycle and pedestrian projects for Vanderburgh, Warrick and Henderson counties. The MTP includes projects through the year 2045 and associated conformity determination (Chapter 8); the TIP includes short-term projects between 2020 and 2024. Comments were accepted through March 12, 2019.
The Evansville MPO Express is the official MPO Newsletter. The Express is used to inform the public about transportation projects, planning activities and upcoming events in the EMPO Planning Area.
The Evansville-Henderson Regional Transportation Guide was developed by the Evansville MPO and the Regional Transit Advisory Committee as a resource for residents throughout the Evansville region, including Vanderburgh, Henderson, Warrick, Gibson, and Posey counties.
The Transit Asset Management (TAM) Plan identifies the conditions of METS’ and HART’s current assets and helps prioritize funding to replace assets beyond their useful life. Through this process, the transit agencies can efficiently replace assets with available funding and keep the transit systems in a State of Good Repair (SGR).
