Presentation Topics
Mobility 2045 Update
One of the primary responsibilities of a Metropolitan Planning Organization is the development and maintenance of a Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). NCTCOG staff has initiated the development of an update to the current MTP, Mobility 2045, and will provide an overview and update on the timeline for the Plan.

Look Out Texans Campaign
NCTCOG is once again launching the Look Out Texans campaign to inform people walking, biking, and driving on how to be safe and look out for one another on Texas roadways and trails. The campaign launches this spring and will run through the fall, focusing on crosswalk safety, biking tips and how drivers should interact with people biking and walking. An overview of the campaign will be provided.

DFW Clean Cities Update: 2019 Impacts and Fleet Recognition Awards
NCTCOG is the host organization for Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities (DFWCC), a US Department of Energy initiative to reduce total energy impacts in the transportation sector. As part of these efforts, DFWCC surveys local fleets each year about alternative fuel use and other fuel-saving activities. The 2019 Annual Survey results highlighting energy impact and emissions reductions as well as details on the Fleet Recognition program will be provided.

Resources & Information
Regional Smoking Vehicle Program (RSVP)
Since 2007, the RSVP has allowed North Central Texans to help improve air quality by anonymously reporting vehicles emitting visible smoke and pollution. Educational material and information on how to report a smoking vehicle is available upon request. More information: www.smokingvehicle.net.

Vehicle Incentives & Funding Opportunities
NCTCOG maintains a list of funding opportunities and incentives for projects that reduce air pollution from vehicles or help improve energy efficiency. Examples of projects include, but are not limited to, replacing older vehicles, purchasing new electric vehicles, or building alternative fuel infrastructure. Eligible recipients can include citizens as well as companies or fleets. For more information, see www.nctcog.org/aqfunding.

Interactive Public Input: Map Your Experience
NCTCOG’s Transportation Department is accepting public input through a new, online map tool. Comments will be used to guide upcoming planning efforts, including an update to Mobility 2045, the region’s long-range metropolitan transportation plan. Help us plan for the future by letting us know how the region’s transportation system can better serve you. Share your transportation experience at www.nctcog.org/mapyourexperience.

Regional Trails Videos
NCTCOG developed the Trail of the Month video series to inform the public about the Dallas-Fort Worth region’s extensive trails and bikeways system, which is comprised of over 1,500 miles of existing and funded facilities and nearly 5,800 miles of planned routes. These videos highlight the history of the trails as well as regional connectivity, access to jobs and schools, community enhancement and involvement, and current and future investment. Plans for additional videos are currently in the works.
