What we do
The quality of life and economic vitality of Massachusetts are dependent upon a strong transportation infrastructure. MAPC works on promoting sustainable transportation in many ways: providing planning support to the Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO); performing corridor planning and land use studies; taking part in projects that increase access to bicycle and pedestrian modes of transportation; providing technical assistance; coordinating transportation funding programs; and advocating for transportation finance reform.
Community Transportation Technical Assistance (CTTA) Program
The purpose of the CTTA program is to provide municipal officials with technical advice on local transportation concerns such as traffic operations, safety, bicycle and pedestrian access, livability, parking, and bus stop locations. The program is open to all of the 101 municipalities in the MPO region. To learn more about this program, download the program information and application flyer.
Livable Community Workshop (LCW)
The purpose of the LCW is twofold: 1) to educate communities on how to incorporate livability concepts, and 2) to promote thinking about how design influences livability. To learn more about this program, download the workshop information and application flyer.
