The Memphis MPO is a federally mandated regional transportation planning organization that is responsible for transportation policy development, planning, and programming for the counties of Shelby and Fayette, in Tennessee, and DeSoto and Marshall Counties, in Mississippi. In its role, the MPO works with local agencies, state agencies, federal agencies, private sector, citizens and stakeholders to plan a coordinated transportation system designed to move people, goods and services affordably, efficiently and safely throughout the MPO area. Following a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative (3-C) process, the Memphis MPO has committed itself to creating a comprehensive multi-modal strategy that provides the region's residents with greater mobility, lower transportation costs, safer streets, cleaner air, less traffic congestion, and a greater quality of life.

The purpose of this project is to provide on call services for transit planning and analysis, including (but not limited to), traffic impact analysis, fiscal, and land use analyses, update of transit and transit related studies and reports, and assisting the MPO in the creation and implementation of transit strategies that further the agency's long-term goals and are consistent with the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), on an as-needed basis.

  5. As needed, conduct an analysis of the existing transportation network using land use and travel demand modeling information and update the information as it relates to transit planning.
  6. Assist in developing policy recommendation for improving the region's transit, with specific actions described for the MPO, MATA, state DOTs, other agencies, and local jurisdictions with detailed descriptions and applicable funding considerations, on an as-needed basis.
  7. Provide data, research, peer reviews, maps, and other documentation as requested by the MPO for use in transit planning products or activities.
  8. Evaluate the impact of new and upcoming trends and emerging technologies on the future of transportation (e.g. autonomous vehicles, on-demand transit services, intelligent transportation systems, alternative fuels, and advance technology) as well as addressing challenges (e.g. demographic changes, funding, planning for unforeseen events and impacts this can have on transportation, etc. and develop a set of recommendations for the region to be better equipped in preparing for the future.
  9. Coordinate and communicate between the MPO, transit agencies, and local jurisdictions and attend and assist with the preparation and presentation of materials for public meetings as well as meetings of the Transportation Policy Board (TPB), the Engineering and Technical Committee (ETC), and other MPO committee meetings, as needed.
