2040 Regional Transportation Plan

The Future of Transportation in Placer County

PCTPA is statutorily required to prepare a long-range transportation plan every five years, known as the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). This important document projects population and housing growth, estimates revenue, and outlines transportation investment priorities for the next 20 years. Because transportation plays a key role in promoting economic development and protecting quality of life, PCTPA worked with residents, elected officials, and stakeholders from across Placer County to prepare the plan.


Preparing for Future Growth

Placer County is one of the most popular regions in the Sacramento area. An additional 70,000 homes and 30,000 jobs are anticipated by 2040.

A Fiscally Constrained Plan

The RTP must be financially constrained to anticipate future funding. Inclusion of projects into the plan provide eligibility to receive future funding when it materializes.

Your Input Matters

PCTPA hosted a series of three on-line surveys to solicit community input on transportation priorities in Placer County. Click here to view the results.

Placer's Transportation Leaders

As the regional transportation planning agency for Placer County, PCTPA updates and maintains the RTP.  PCTPA is managed by one councilmember from each city and town, two Placer County Supervisors, and a citizen representative.
