How Are We Doing? Be Part of Our Federal Certification with USDOT

Posted on: March 4, 2019 in Transportation News

Have you ever wanted to share your thoughts on transportation issues with representatives from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT)? Here’s your chance!

Every four years, MetroPlan Orlando undergoes an important federal certification process to confirm that we are following all laws and regulations for transportation planning. The USDOT team will be visiting us on March 5, 2019 to conduct our review, which is required by federal law.

As part of that review, they’d like to hear from the public – that’s you! The comment period will be open from March 5-April 5, 2019. This is your opportunity to provide input on transportation policies and MetroPlan Orlando’s work. All public feedback received by April 5 will be sent to the USDOT federal team for consideration when they write our certification review report.

You can comment on how we’re doing in several ways, including an email to:
