About BRTB

About BRTB MapThe Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) is the federally designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Baltimore region. The BRTB works with local, state, regional, and federal partners to coordinate plans and planning activities, provide data and analysis to decision makers, and coordinate regional programs to advance transportation, safety, freight movement, budgeting for future transportation projects and programs. The BRTB’s efforts are based on a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive (3-C) planning process. All transportation projects and programs that receive federal surface transportation funding in our region go through this planning process. The BRTB is housed at and staffed by the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC).

How is the BRTB governed?

Section 13-309 of the Economic Development Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland authorizes the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board to serve the MPO function for the Baltimore region. The BRTB is governed through bylaws and agreements that describe the form, function, and rules of procedure. View the BRTB Bylaws.
