Planning Our Future Together:
Celebrating 50 Years of the TPB

The TPB was created in 1965 by the region's local and state governments to respond to federal highway legislation in 1962 that required the establishment of a "continuing, comprehensive and coordinated" transportation planning process in every urbanized area in the United States. The TPB's 50th anniversary provides an opportunity to look back at the body's role in making the region's transportation system what it is today. It is also an opportunity to look ahead to the future and what the next half-century might bring.
