Message From Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

The Broward MPO team had the opportunity to collaborate with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance and work with a wonderful group of professionals in San Diego last week. My utmost gratitude goes to our friends at the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), who kindly devoted their valuable time to providing our delegation with great insights and how we can collectively create the best regional transportation system in Florida. At the Broward MPO, we are firmly on our way with our Route to 2050 initiative, guided by our North Star, Vision 2100. Working with our neighboring counties, our mission is to make this vision a reality. Our time in San Diego helped to clarify the path our journey will take and we hope you will join us!


Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance Leadership Trip to California Brings Together 100+ Leaders

The Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance Leadership Study Trip to San Diego was a huge success! We learned from our transportation colleagues from around the nation and engaging in insightful discussions about how we can work together to address quality of life issues in our communities.

MPO Team Participates in

Broward County Bike Days

Last weekend, our team had the pleasure of taking part in a Broward County Bike Days event in Lauderhill to engage with the community about our Route to 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Update. The MTP works to address the transportation issues of today, looking ahead to 2050, and exploring new mobility options for the future. The plan will address elements like how to accommodate electric vehicles, ensure our transportation system can withstand changes in our weather patterns, and improve access to your destinations by providing more options for getting you there. Get involved in Route to 2050 and use your voice to help shape transportation projects.

Broward MPO Set to Begin Annual

Federal Certification Process in April

Every four years, our partners at the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) undertake an evaluation of our agency as part of their Transportation Management Area (TMA) Certification Review. This evaluation, which begins in April, looks at everything that we work on, from transportation planning and public outreach to financial stability and upcoming projects. We invite you to share your opinion on our efforts! Please email us at [email protected] with your feedback by May 12. We look forward to hearing from you!

Take Our Survey and Enter to Win $250!

The Route to 2050 survey plays a vital part in the MPO’s public outreach efforts to update the Metropolitan Transportation Plan, or MTP. Public engagement is critical to understanding your needs and priorities for transportation. The survey results will be used to develop a vision, set policy goals, and prioritize projects for funding. By completing the survey, you can be part of a drawing to win a $250 Visa gift card.

March is Bicycle Month in Florida

Celebrate at Pedal Palooza


Join Us on March 28 for a Discussion About Mobility Hubs with the Institute of Transportation Engineers

Mobility hubs serve a critical function in the regional transportation system as origin/destination and transfer points. They are places of connectivity where various modes of transportation—walking, cycling, riding transit, rideshare, taxi services, and others—come together seamlessly and where there is mixed-use activity such as working, living, shopping, and playing. The amount and density of development feeds off the availability of and interaction between the various modes. Because mobility hubs may include many travel modes, they are prime opportunities for the application of technology innovations, including bike sharing and scooter sharing stations, carsharing and transportation network companies (TNCs), travel information, fare payment apps, and more. This webinar will provide an overview of the April 2022 ITE Technical Brief on Mobility Hubs, as well as share case studies on successful mobility hub planning and implementation from around the country. James Cromar, deputy executive director of mobility initiatives will serve on a panel of experts who will outline their approach and lessons learned to advancing mobility hubs in their local communities.

Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program is Now Open for Applications

The U.S. Department of Transportation opened applications today for the Charging and Fueling Infrastructure (CFI) Discretionary Grant Program, a $2.5 billion, five-year program to support community and neighborhood electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The first round of funding will make $700 million available from fiscal years 2022 and 2023 to cities, counties, local governments and tribes. The CFI program was created by the 2021 infrastructure law. Funding is divided equally between the community program, which aims to place EV charging infrastructure in publicly accessible locations, and the corridor program, which will install infrastructure along designated alternative fuel corridors. Hydrogen, propane and natural gas fueling infrastructure can also be funded under these programs. The community program can be used to install EV chargers in parking facilities at public buildings, public schools, and public parks or in publicly accessible parking facilities owned or managed by a private entity. According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), community program projects that meet current or projected demand for charging or fueling infrastructure and include faster charging speeds will be given consideration, with priority given to locations in rural areas, low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, communities with low ratios of private parking and those with high ratios of multiunit dwellings. The corridor program builds on the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program for highway charging, bringing EV charging into urban and rural communities, downtown areas and local neighborhoods, particularly in underserved and disadvantaged communities, as well as to designated alternative fuel corridors.

Applications for the corridor program that build charging or fueling infrastructure for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles along the National Highway Freight Network and near intermodal transfer stations will be considered, along with construction applications that would not be possible without federal assistance. The FHWA will also look for projects that help meet excess demand in existing locations, meet current or future market demand, improve access where current and future needs are identified, convert alternative fuel corridors from corridor-pending to corridor-ready and those that support a competitive market without impairing existing providers. The FHWA and the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation will offer webinars for potential grant recipients in March and April. Applications are due by May 30. The FHWA will be holding two information webinars about the CFI program. Click HERE to register for the webinar on the March 21 at 1:00 p.m. EST, or click HERE to register for the webinar on March 22 at 2:00 p.m. EST.

Spring Into Safety With These Tips for

Pedestrians and Drivers

With the arrival of spring, comes the gift of additional sunlight and more people taking advantage of the longer days by walking or cycling. Unfortunately, this also means that it is dark in the morning when children go to school, no matter what their mode of transportation. Therefore, it is a perfect time to go over some of the basic safety guidelines for pedestrians and drivers. For those who often walk or ride their bikes in proximity to vehicular traffic, courtesy and caution from drivers is typically anticipated; unfortunately, this is not always the reality. Focus on surrounding traffic can make drivers unaware of other road users, making it important for them to take extra steps to protect themselves. Be mindful of these tips!


  • Ensure the driver sees you (make eye contact) before crossing a street or driveway.

  • Keep to the sidewalk or bike lane/path if possible and maintain as much distance from traffic as possible.


  • Bright or light-colored clothing and a light can increase visibility.

  • Cross at intersections, crosswalks, and other areas where drivers are likely to expect pedestrians to cross.

  • Pay attention to areas of high-risk, such as driveways and parking lots where vehicles are joining or exiting the traffic.


  • Stay vigilant even in areas that pedestrians are not expected to be present.

  • Slow down while in school zones and residential areas, yielding the right of way to pedestrians crossing the road, even if they are not using a crosswalk.

  • When it is dark or the visibility is reduced due to weather, it is imperative for drivers to decrease their speed and drive more carefully.

  • Don’t text or succumb to other distractions.
