Destination 2050 is the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (MPO) long-range transportation plan—a blueprint that defines the vision, goals, and objectives for transportation planning in the Boston region for the next two decades. Using federal funding forecasts, Destination 2050 prioritizes spending on transportation projects, investment programs, and planning studies to address existing and anticipated mobility needs.
MPO staff conducted a Needs Assessment to examine
Through in-person and online public engagement, we asked people about transportation needs and sought input on the MPO’s proposed goals, projects, and programs. Stakeholder needs shaped the MPO’s vision.
The Boston Region MPO envisions an equitable, pollution-free, and modern regional transportation system that gets people to their destinations safely, easily, and reliably, and that supports an inclusive, resilient, healthy, and economically vibrant Boston region.
Combining analyses with public input, the MPO developed a plan that serves as the guiding document for coordinated transportation investments in the Boston region. Destination 2050 emphasizes maintenance and resilience of the transportation system, including projects that support bicycle, pedestrian, and transit infrastructure along with major roadway improvements.
