Long Range Transportation Plan Update

LRTP cover page with aerial picture of Ithaca



 The Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council is required to maintain a Long-Range Transportation Plan  (LRTP) that provides a twenty-year vision for the transportation system in Tompkins County.

 The document needs to be updated every five years. Over the next year the current 2040 LRTP will be updated to a new 2045   LRTP. Final approval of the 2045 LRTP is scheduled for December 17, 2024.

 This website will provide evolving drafts of the document as well as information on different public outreach efforts.

 We welcome your input on the plan, but also, we would like to hear from you about ideas and issues related to transportation in our community. What works for you? What doesn’t? What ideas do you have to make things better?

 The LRTP addresses all forms of surface transportation – cars, freight, transit, inter-city buses, bicycles, walking, shared transportation (bike share, car share) and rail. Air transport is not covered in this plan.
