About the MTP
Both the state DOT, which oversees transportation projects statewide, and MPOs are required to submit two types of plans a long range and short range plan to continue to receive federal transportation funds. The long-range transportation plan forecasts transportation needs for the next 25 years. The long-range plan list the goals, visions and projected transportation projects for the region. This plan will analyze what will happen in the next 25 years if current trends continue, and subsequently propose actions to be implemented in order to relieve congestion, maintain air quality, and improve our quality of life. The long-range plan will help guide decisions about which transportation projects to fund and implement in the short range plan or Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). As mentioned before under federal law, all metropolitan areas with a population of more than 50,000 must have a metropolitan transportation plan. The MTP allows metropolitan areas to access federal funds. In addition, if no long term transportation planning was done, and the future was not prepared for, the existing infrastructure of our metropolitan area might not be able to handle increases in population, employment, or traffic, possibly leading to increased congestion, air pollution and other problems.

Mobility 2040 (Current)
On December 8, 2014 the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Transportation Policy Board approved the region’s long range multi-modal transportation plan or Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). This is the first MTP for the expanded MPO study area that includes all of Bexar, Comal and Guadalupe Counties as well as a portion of Kendall County.
The MTP development process began in December 2012 with the adoption of population and employment control totals for the region.
Three rounds of 6-8 public meetings each were held at important points in the MTP development process:
- Regional transportation vision and goals (Fall 2013)
- How do we want to grow? (Spring 2014)
- Project selection (Fall 2014)
with additional opportunities for public comment, in person and online, throughout the entire development of the Plan.
Technical analysis was also an important part of the Plan development process:
- Development and analysis of three potential population and employment growth scenarios
- Analysis of the Plan on Environmental Justice communities
- High level environmental analysis of all projects in the Plan
- Identification of future congested corridors and potential mitigation strategies
The MPO thanks the citizens, elected officials, agency staff, consultant team, and everyone that participated in the development of this regional long range transportation plan. For more information, please contact the MPO and remember, We Plan To Keep You Moving.
Approved on December 7, 2009
By the year 2035, there will be over 600,000 more people in the MPO study area. As our area grows and new jobs are created, our transportation needs increase as well. For this reason, the MPO is updating the MTP out to the year 2035. The MTP is a 25-year, long-range plan. It is used as a guide to plan for future transportation needs in the MPO study area, which includes Bexar County and parts of Comal and Guadalupe Counties, and is updated every five (5) years. The MTP also lists the expenditure of federal, state, and local funds that become available for these projects.

This brochure is a summary of the development and outcome of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan known as “Mobility 2035.” The Plan functions as a “living” document, evolving over time as specific policies, programs and projects are advanced. “Mobility 2035” was locally adopted by the Transportation Policy Board on December 7, 2009, but will be updated as necessary. A comprehensive and formal update is required every 5 years.
Approved on December 6, 2004
Planning for the future transportation needs of this region requires a comprehensive look at the current transportation system, future demographics, and the anticipated available funding for the area for transportation projects. Although this seems like a simple exercise, there is a lot of work involved in improving the region’s transportation infrastructure. The San Antonio metropolitan area's economy and environment depend heavily on the condition and efficient performance of our regional transportation system. Recognizing the mobility needs of our community and addressing those needs will eventually lead to improvements in our economy and quality of life.
This brochure summarizes the development and outcome of the San Antonio Bexar County region’s Metropolitan Transportation Plan “Mobility 2030” that is the basic framework for the San Antonio Bexar County Metropolitan Planning Organization's regional transportation planning efforts for the next 25 years. The Plan was locally adopted on December 6, 2004 and is generally updated on a quarterly basis. We are required to complete a formal update of the Plan every five years.
