Mobility 2050: The Metropolitan Plan for North Central Texas
NCTCOG is working on the next long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). Staff has initiated the development of Mobility 2050 and will provide an overview of key considerations and public input opportunities. For more information, visit:

DOE Multimodal Delivery Project

NCTCOG is participating in a City of Arlington led effort to test and evaluate new mobility options to deliver essential food items to underserved communities. These deliveries will be made by a combination of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drones, 6-foot-long battery powered drones that can carry nearly nine pounds, and autonomous delivery robots with a cargo bay. Staff will provide information about the project, upcoming demonstration opportunities, and more.

Regional Roadway Safety Performance Targets Update

As the Metropolitan Planning Organization for North Central Texas, NCTCOG is required to set regional targets for roadway safety. These targets are used to track and report on the region’s performance through existing documents such as the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and the State of the Region report. Staff will provide an update on the proposed 2024 safety targets.

Bridging Highway Divides for DFW Communities Federal Grant Award
Through the Neighborhood Access and Equity (NAE) grant program, the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) recently awarded NCTCOG $80 million to build the foundational infrastructure for four pedestrian connection projects in the area. Building upon what already exists, Klyde Warren Park and Southern Gateway Park are expansion projects. New investments are located near McKinney’s downtown on SH 5 and Dallas IH 30. Every project will improve residents' options for non-automotive transportation and reduce or remove major highway barriers.

Vehicle Emissions Reduction Initiatives

Staff will present strategies for reducing air pollution, including information about the Car Care Awareness (CCA) campaign and Engine Off North Texas program. CCA educates vehicle owners and the general public about proper vehicle maintenance practices, Engine Off North Texas aims to mitigate the effects of unnecessary vehicle idling. Citizens can actively contribute to improving regional air quality by reporting heavy-duty vehicle idling. For more information, visit:
