CAMPO, as the regional transportation planning organization, is involved in a number of activities.
Transportation Improvement Program
According to federal law and regulations, CAMPO, in cooperation with the state and transit operators, develops a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the area. The four-year TIP lists projects that are funded with federal dollars and are consistent with the long range plan developed for the area.
Unified Planning Work Program
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) provides descriptive details for the CAMPO planning process for each fiscal year. This activity is required by the federal government. To effectively identify all work tasks, CAMPO prepares an annual work program, or UPWP, with input from federal, state and local jurisdictions.
Bicycle & Pedestrian
The 2035 Regional Transportation Plan recognizes the importance of developing a safe and connected bicycle and pedestrian network that serves users of all ages and abilities across the region. The Plan sets an objective to “Increase bicycle and pedestrian mode share to at least 12% of all peak period trips within the urbanized area by 2035.”
Congestion Management Process
The Congestion Management Process (CMP) is a federally required program where congestion in the regional transportation system is monitored, evaluated, and managed. The intent of the CMP is to protect the region’s investments and improve the effectiveness of the existing and future transportation networks.
Environment & Air Quality
Counties in the CAMPO planning area are currently in attainment of all the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) set by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Historically, the region has experienced periodic exceedances of the NAAQS for ground-level ozone and has taken proactive measures to remain in attainment.
Environmental Justice & Civil Rights
CAMPO is committed to encouraging fair and meaningful participation by all communities and individuals in the CAMPO region and ensuring that the impacts of CAMPO programs and activities are distributed equitably throughout the region.
The CAMPO region has approximately 138 million tons of freight moving into or through the region per year by air, rail and over the road. The large population growth in the region, along with the growing presence of high-technology industry, has increased the demands placed on an already limited transportation network.
Regional Transit Coordination
CAMPO serves as the lead agency for The Capital Area Regional Transit Coordination Committee (RTCC). The mission of the RTCC is to foster the development of a seamless public transportation system that achieves efficiencies, eliminates duplication, increases coordination, and addresses service gaps.
Regional Data & Maps
The Geographic Information System (GIS) CAMPO manages is a collection of transportation-related data undertaken collectively by CAMPO, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), and member jurisdictions. All of the GIS data is stored in the ArcGIS shapefile format, while some are also available in KML for Google Earth.
Regional Transportation Plans
CAMPO updates its long-range transportation plan every five years. With input from the people of Central Texas, CAMPO works with its partner jurisdictions to produce a coordinated plan based on a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive process.
CAMPO’s involvement in safety is to keep people safe when traveling on Central Texas’ roadways. Efforts to improve the safety of people in the CAMPO region, reduce the frequency and severity of accidents and provide resources and data is a priority for CAMPO.
