A Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is a long-term blueprint of a region’s transportation system. RTPs are required every four years and are plans for 20+ years into the future. The plan identifies and analyzes transportation needs of the metropolitan region and creates a framework for project priorities. As the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the region, SLOCOG represents and works with the County of San Luis Obispo, as well as, the cities of Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Grover Beach, Morro Bay, Paso Robles, Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo as the lead agency in facilitating the development of the RTP. 

The 2023 RTP shall contain an integrated set of goals, policy objectives, action strategies, and investments to maintain, manage, and improve the transportation system in the San Luis Obispo region to year 2045. The 2023 RTP accentuates a coordinated approach to improve the effectiveness of transportation decision-making across all levels involved: state and federal, regional, local cities and county, providers, and neighboring agencies.
