All Aboard Transportation Planning Division
TPD moves APA! With a robust membership base consisting of transportation planners across the US and the world, the American Planning Association Transportation Planning Division facilitates the exchange of knowledge to efficiently move people and goods, shape urban form, enhance economic vitality and improve quality of life. The APA TPD collaborates with other APA Divisions and other professional groups to advocate for the transportation planning profession and promote mobility in the communities where we live and work.

Live Briefing: Surface Transportation Reauthorization Act
A pro-planning surface transportation bill unanimously passed the US Senate Environment and Public Works Committee last week and it’s a big deal. The bipartisan bill includes a historical high level of support for planning in the four areas planners’ told Congress to prioritize: climate and resilience, equity, safety and active transportation, and greater support for MPOs.
Join APA’s Public Affairs and Transportation Planning Division on Friday, June 11 at 12 p.m. ET for a 30-minute debrief that unpacks the provisions we liked best, the places where there is still room for improvement, and what you can do to push Congress to renew and reform the current surface transportation law before it expires in September.
