Public Participation Plan

Help inform how we engage Bay Area residents in the planning process to create a shared vision for the future.


The public comment period for MTC’s Draft 2023 Public Participation Plan for the San Francisco Bay Area is now closed. The draft document highlights opportunities for Bay Area residents to engage in the agency’s planning work and funding allocations.

Read the Draft 2023 Public Participation Plan

The proposed framework for community involvement includes enhancements geared toward better reaching Equity Priority Communities, more comprehensive public information techniques and a refinement of MTC’s guiding principles for engagement. It also outlines planning and decision milestones for the next update to the region’s long-range transportation and land use blueprint, known as Plan Bay Area 2050+. The current plan, known as Plan Bay Area 2050, was adopted jointly by MTC and the Association of Bay Area Governments in 2021. MTC anticipates an extensive outreach effort with the public, local governments (cities, counties, congestion management/county transportation agencies, and transit agencies), community-based organizations and youth. This outreach will begin in summer 2023.

About the Public Participation Plan

State and federal law requires MTC to adopt a participation plan to provide members of the public with opportunities to be involved in the transportation planning process. MTC’s 2018 Public Participation Plan (PPP) was adopted in June 2018 and informs interested residents on how to engage in the range of MTC’s decisions relating to planning and funding allocations.
