Transportation Planning for the Future

Our transportation system, with its vast network of roads, bus routes, rail lines, sidewalks, and bicycle paths is the backbone of our region. Coordinated planning of that system is critical to the continued growth of our local and regional economies. Planning is also important to ensure that as the system grows to manage the traffic congestion caused by economic development, it does it in a way that is sensitive to our region's valuable natural and community resources. The Transportation Department of the South Alabama Regional Planning Commission is the staff to the Mobile Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Rural Planning Organization.

If you have any comments for the Mobile Metropolitan Planning Organization, we invite you to send us a comment. Click HERE for a form to printed and mailed or faxed.
