Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs).

According to the Federal Transit Administration website, a Metropolitan Planning Organization, or MPO, is the policy board of an organization created and designated to carry out the metropolitan transportation planning process. MPOs are required to represent localities in all urbanized areas (UZAs) with populations over 50,000, as determined by the U.S. Census. MPOs are designated by agreement between the governor and local governments that together represent at least 75 percent of the affected population (including the largest incorporated city, based on population) or in accordance with procedures established by applicable state or local law.

In the Upstate, we have 3 MPO's; Anderson Area Transportation Study (ANATS), Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study (GPATS), and Spartanburg Area Transportation Study (SPATS).
