Greater Madison MPO

Welcome to the Greater Madison Metropolitan planning organization (MPO)

The Greater Madison Metropolitan Planning Organization leads the collaborative planning and funding of a sustainable, equitable transportation system for the Greater Madison region. The MPO is responsible for comprehensive planning and decision making to build agreement on transportation investments that balance roadway, public transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and other transportation needs to achieve an exceptional quality of life for all within the region.

What's New at MPO

The MPO's Dane County Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan

Our Dane County Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Plan was approved for release and adopted in March 2024. The plan outlines current trends in the electric vehicle (EV) market and explains what municipalities need to do to prepare for the rise in EVs and how to build out charging infrastructure at the local level.

Case Study: Greater Madison Metropolitan Planning Organization's Approach to Transportation Equity

We were featured in a USDOT Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) program Case Study: Greater Madison Metropolitan Planning Organization's Approach to Transportation Equity, which reports that "Instead of focusing only on equitable project and plan outcomes, GMMPO staff work to be proactive and intentional to ensure participation throughout the planning process includes perspectives and identities from all parts of the community." Further, "the MPO’s planning processes include consideration of the benefits and burdens allocated to historically disadvantaged communities. The MPO aims to improve the transit access, and broader transportation system, for historically disadvantaged communities." The MPO is thrilled to have its efforts recognized in this case study, and to encourage and support similar efforts in other jurisdictions.

Draft Adjusted Urban Area Boundary

We are in the process of establishing the adjusted 2020 Census Madison Urban Area boundary for transportation planning and funding purposes, per Federal law and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) guidelines. Federal law requires MPOs and State and local officials to cooperatively set new urban area and planning area boundaries following the decennial Census and release of the urban areas defined by the U.S. Census Bureau. The draft adjusted Urban Area Boundary for the Greater Madison MPO was adopted at the February 7, 2024, MPO Policy Board meeting.

The MPO's 2024 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

Our 2024 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) was adopted at the November 1, 2023, board meeting.

The MPO's 2024-2028 Transportation Improvement Program

Our Transportation Improvement Program, which outlines upcoming transportation projects in our region, was adopted at the October 4, 2023, board meeting.
