Federal Certification of the Palm Beach TPA

How are we doing? Share public feedback for the TPA's Federal certification.

Every four years, the Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency (TPA) undergoes an important federal certification process conducted by a team from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA), representing the U.S. Dept. of Transportation (USDOT). Their process reviews and evaluates all aspects of the Palm Beach TPA from transportation planning to public outreach to the financial health of the agency, as they confirm that all laws and regulations are being followed and note best practices.

Public Feedback: An important part of the federal review is feedback from the public. This is your opportunity to provide input on transportation policies and the work of the TPA.
