MTC updates its PPP approximately every four years. State and federal laws require MTC and other metropolitan planning organizations to adopt participation plans to give more people opportunities to be involved in the transportation planning process. MTC’s current PPP was adopted in 2018 and informs interested residents about how to engage in the wide range of MTC’s planning and funding activities.

Appendix A to the Public Participation Plan, which also will be updated, currently highlights planning and decision milestones, and public engagement opportunities, for Plan Bay Area 2050 — the region’s current long-range plan charting the course for the future of the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. Review the 2018-adopted PPP on the MTC website at

An updated PPP — to be released in draft form for public comment in the new year — will highlight planning and decision milestones, along with public engagement opportunities, for the next update to Plan Bay Area 2050 — the region’s long-range plan that MTC adopts with the Association of Bay Area Governments. The Commission is slated to adopt an updated PPP in late spring 2023.         

MTC is the regional transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
