About  

The Greensboro Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) manages the transportation planning process required by federal law.  The MPO plans for our area's surface transportation needs, including highways, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian facilities. 

The MPO serves the City of Greensboro, much of unincorporated Guilford County, and the towns of Oak Ridge, Pleasant Garden, Sedalia, Stokesdale and Summerfield

The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) is the MPO’s Policy Board with representatives from City Council, the NC Board of Transportation, the Board of County Commissioners and local town councils.

The Technical Coordinating Committee advises the TAC and is made up of staff from the following agencies: GDOT, Greensboro Transit Authority, Greensboro Planning Department, Guilford County Planning and Development Department, Piedmont Triad International Airport, NC Department of Transportation, and the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART).

The priorities of the MPO are to:

  • Promote the safe and efficient management, operation, and development of transportation systems;
  • Serve the mobility needs of people and freight;
  • Foster economic growth and development; and
  • Minimize the negative effects of transportation, including air pollution.
