The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson Counties.
CAMPO coordinates regional transportation planning with counties, cities, Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Capital Area Rural Transportation System, Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, Texas Department of Transportation and other transportation providers in the region.
CAMPO approves the use of federal and state transportation funds within the region. The two main products of CAMPO are the Long-Range Transportation Plan (20+ years) and the short-range program, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). CAMPO is governed by the Transportation Policy Board, which comprises regional and local officials.
MPOs are designated for all urbanized areas having a population greater than 50,000 as identified by the U.S. Bureau of the Census. MPOs currently operate under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) signed into law on July 6, 2012 by President Barack Obama.
