Public participation process

New Jersey is completely covered by three Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs): the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), the South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization (SJTPO), and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority Inc. (NJTPA). The STIP includes the three MPO Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) without modification.

Each MPO has a public participation process for their Transportation Plan, TIP and conformity determination. The state makes copies of the STIP available for each MPO public meeting and representatives from the NJDOT and NJ TRANSIT were present to answer questions and concerns raised by the public on our program. The public comment period for each MPO TIP and the STIP ran for a period of 30 days.
