Making your TSP a Success

A successful TSP is as unique as the community it describes: its policy framework, planning direction, and selected projects and programs reflect a community’s objectives and priorities to meet local multimodal transportation needs. Successful TSPs are developed in coordination with local city, county, regional, and state agency partners with input from local community leaders, business owners, and citizens.

Regulatory Compliance

A TSP must be consistent with other TSPs and planning documents governing the region it serves and with the Oregon Transportation Plan and its modal and topic plans. TSPs are required by the Transportation Planning Rule documented in the Oregon Administrative Rule 660-012-0015.

Example Transportation System Plans

Region 1: Portland Metro

Region 2: Willamette Valley and North Coast

Region 3: Southwestern Oregon

Region 4: Central Oregon

Region 5: Eastern Oregon

For more examples of TSPs and other planning documents, see the Transportation Planning Online Database.
