The Columbia Area Transportation Study Organization (CATSO), as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Columbia, Missouri, Metro Area, is required to prepare a Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and to update that Plan every five years. The most recent plan, the 2040 LRTP, was approved by the CATSO Coordinating Committee on February 27, 2014.
Please Note: LRTP plans also incorporate public input and priorities developed in other plans such as but not limited to the Sidewalk Master Plan, the Public Transit - Human Services Coordination Plan, Parks & Rec Master Plan, and the Comprehensive Plan.
CATSO staff is available to answer any questions you may have, and is always looking for comments and input on the Long Range Transportation Plan. Please contact us at (573) 874-7239 or send us an email with your LRTP related comments and questions. You may also send written comments to: CATSO, PO Box 6015, Columbia, MO 65205.
