Regional Efforts
The MPO serves as the regional planning body that operates to ensure a coordinated and consistent approach to transportation planning throughout the Eugene-Springfield area. The MPO regularly coordinates with metropolitan area partners: Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), the Cities of Eugene, Springfield, Coburg, Lane County, Lane Transit District, and Point2point; in planning, management of funding, and infrastructure investment. 

Statewide Role
The MPO also engages in statewide planning and coordination efforts to discuss issues of mutual interest. Participation in broader discussions enables the MPO to remain current on issues and trends, to be able to communicate back to local partners, and to ensure that the region's issues are considered in statewide efforts and decision-making.
