This video, An Introduction to Metropolitan Transportation Planning, explains what a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is, who makes transportation decisions and how those decisions are made. It also explains the purpose of the three MPO documents: the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), the Long-Range Transportation Plan, and the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and how each is prepared.
