We invite you to learn about the BCSMPO and its work to plan transportation in Brazos County--then participate in the process that molds the future transportation where you live.
Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are entities designated by law with the lead responsibility for the development of the area's transportation plans and to coordinate the transportation planning process. All urban areas over 50,000 population are required to have an MPO if the agencies spend Federal money on transportation improvements.
The planning process includes making informed predictions about future transportation needs, investigating and assessing alternative actions for meeting those needs, and making recommendations about which course of action to pursue. The information generated by this process is used by decision-makers to select transportation policies and programs from the choice of alternatives.
The BCSMPO is composed of two active bodies of representation: a Policy Committee and a Technical Advisory Committee. Representatives from the both the City of Bryan and College Station, Texas A&M University, Brazos County, Brazos Valley Transit (The District), and the Texas Department of Transportation sit on these committees. The Bryan/College Station MPO planning area is Brazos County.
