Who is the Palm Beach TPA?

What does the Palm Beach TPA do?

The Palm Beach TPA plans, prioritizes and funds transportation projects and programs. Every five years, the TPA updates a  Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) that forecasts transportation demands and identifies cost-feasible projects for the next 25 years. The TPA then annually adopts a 5-year funding program that allocates federal and state transportation dollars to the projects in the LRTP that are most important to our communities.

The TPA is responsible for transportation planning in Palm Beach County, Florida. By federal regulation, each urban area in the United States creates an agency like this to act as a liaison between local communities, their citizens, and the state and federal departments of transportation (DOTs). The TPA is currently operating under the FAST Act (Fixing America's Surface Transportation).

Below is a list of the goals which guide the TPA's efforts:

  1. Provide an efficient and reliable vehicular transportation system
  2. Prioritize an efficient and interconnected mass transit system
  3. Prioritize a safe and convenient non-motorized transportation network
  4. Maximize the efficient movement of freight through the region
  5. Preserve and enhance social and environmental resources
