Planning & Implementing Transportation Improvements for Chemung County
In December 1974, the Governor of New York designated the Elmira-Chemung Transportation Council (ECTC) as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Elmira Urbanized Area. MPOs serve urbanized areas with a population of 50,000 or more. The MPO's mission is to help build regional agreement on transportation investments and to balance highway, mass transit and other needs, leading to equitable and cost-effective transportation outcomes.
ECTC is responsible for the planning and programming of any transportation project that includes Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) or Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding.
"MPOs exist to provide regional coordination of transportation investments, while ensuring that the public, especially those traditionally underserved by the transportation system, have opportunities to participate in the decision-making process".
