Background
• Over time:
• UZAs have been combined
• New UZAs have been
designated
• UZAs have become
contiguous
• large projects impacted
multiple MPO areas
• MPOs were asked to
consider consolidating or
improving regional
coordination
Background
• MPOs, recognized the
value of improved
coordination across MPO
boundaries
• But wanted to maintain
autonomy for a variety of
reasons
• So, MPOs formed formal
alliances of two or more
MPOs working together
on issues of joint interest
MPO Regional Alliances
• 22 of Florida’s 26 MPOs
have entered into formal
arrangements to
coordinate regional
transportation planning
activities with one or more
neighboring MPOs
• Resulting in:
• Regional planning activities

• Support and programming
