Planning Process

Implementing Metro Vision goals is a primary objective of the DRCOG regional transportation planning process. Metro Vision implementation influences where the population settles and businesses locate, which, in turn, affects travel behavior and the need for transportation facilities and services.  

To help achieve these goals, the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), the Regional Transportation District (RTD) and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) work together to develop products and programs to lead the Denver region into the future while incorporating state and federal practices and regulations. 

Transportation planning for the Denver region is a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive process. To learn more, read Transportation Planning in the Denver Region.
