The GDOT Planning Division performs several long-range transportation planning and programming tasks, described below. 

Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)
- This long-term planning document is required by the federal government. It details transportation improvements and policies that are to take place in the area. The LRTP is revised at least every four years and must cover at least 20 years into the future over its entire four-year lifespan.
 
Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) - This transportation programming document is required by the Federal government. As part of the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), the MTIP shows the funding schedule for state and federally funded highway, public transportation, rail, bicycle, and pedestrian facilities in the area for the next seven fiscal years. 

Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)  - This federally-required transportation programming document shows how the MPO expects to use transportation planning grant funds during the current fiscal year. The UPWP lists approved activities for these funds. 

Comprehensive Transportation Plan / Thoroughfare Plan - These plans classify existing and proposed roadways as freeways, major thoroughfares, or minor thoroughfares. The Thoroughfare Plan is used by the MPO to show the approximate general corridors of planned or proposed roadways. Local governments generally use the Thoroughfare Plan for land use regulation. 

Collector Street Plan - This map classifies existing and proposed roadways as Collector Streets. The Collector Street Plan is used by the MPO to show the approximate general corridors of needed future collector street links. Local governments generally use the Collector Street Plan for land use regulation. 

Congestion Management Process (CMP) - This federally-required package of coordinated planning, programming, and operational strategies is designed to improve the safety, reliability, and efficiency of the area's transportation system. The CMP identifies a continuous program of data collection and management, performance monitoring, traffic demand reduction, and traffic operation improvements. 

Greensboro Urban Area Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Greenways Plan (BiPed Plan) - The comprehensive MPO-wide plan details how we will meet the area's walking, bicycling, and trail needs. As an implementation of both the 2030 Long Range Transportation Plan and the City's Connections 2025 Comprehensive Plan, the BiPed Plan addresses transportation, safety, recreation, and public health aspects of bicycling and walking.
