The Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) is the regions multi-modal transportation plan that seeks to identify needed improvements. The CTP represents a community’s consensus on the future transportation system (including the existing system and improvements) needed to support anticipated growth and development over a 25-30 year timeframe. When a CTP is adopted by NCDOT, it represents the state’s concurrence with the identified transportation needs and proposed recommendations.
The complete plan, appendices and maps can be found on the MTP page.
The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP, previously known as LRTP) looks 25 years into the future. It forecasts changes in the region and seeks to identify transportation improvements needed to keep travelers and good moving smoothly and how to pay for those improvements.

Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan
The Locally Coordinated Plan (LCP) provides a framework for the development of projects to address transportation needs of the target populations by ensuring that FBRMPO and public transportation and human service agencies coordinate transportation resources offered through Federal Transit Administration programs.
This study aimed to develop recommendations for cross-jurisdictional public transit in the FBRMPO planning area–Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, and Madison Counties–by identifying potential routes and opportunities for coordination (such as establishing a Regional Transit Authority), developing funding strategies, and creating an implementation plan.
French Broad MPO makes federal resources available to urbanized areas (UZAs) for transit capital and operating assistance for transportation related planning. FBMPO is responsible for sub-allocation formula for S.5307 funds to support transit systems not only operated in the City of Asheville, but also by Henderson, Buncombe, and Haywood Counties.
