The Regional Transportation Plan, a long-range comprehensive plan, is the primary means by which federal and state funds are allocated to the Cape's transportation needs. The Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), a collaboration of local, regional, state, and federal transportation officials, votes on this federally required document, which is compiled and maintained by the staff of the Cape Cod Commission. It is updated every four years.
