    Vehicles travel nearly 180 million miles per day in the eight-county Houston-Galveston region. Residents travel to and from work daily. We take our children to school, visit family members across town, shop for groceries, clothing, and for other goods and services. The economy and general well-being of individuals in the Gulf Coast region of Texas rely on the ability to safely and resourcefully travel throughout our diverse area.

    The 2045 Regional Transportation Plan is a long-range plan that prioritizes spending on regional transportation projects, including short and long-range strategies to ensure our transportation network is safe and efficient. With an ever-present focus on safety, efficiency and reliability, the RTP highlights efforts to reduce traffic congestion and vehicle crashes, concentrates on asset management and operations, supports regional economic development opportunities, and maintains emphasis on transportation’s impact on the environment.

    A successful regional planning process demands wide-ranging outreach and participation of the region's stakeholders and general public. H-GAC regularly engages in planning activities to understand the region’s mobility needs and potential solutions by soliciting comments and feedback from the public using a variety of methods.

    Your voice matters. We want to hear your concerns and priorities, and we welcome you to join the conversation by attending public meetings and engaging with the tools in our outreach website.
