Every Four Years our Partners at the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct an evaluation of the Columbia Area Transportation Study (COATS) Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (MPO) effectiveness as an agency in carrying out the metropolitan transportation planning process.


Please share your experiences with the COATS MPO:
• Have you been involved in the transportation planning process?
• Do you have enough opportunity to participate?
• What are your views of the process?
