Help Shape the Future of Transportation in Pinellas County

Pinellas County, Fla. -- The Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is focused on improving transportation throughout the county and has kicked off an effort to create a 30-year blueprint for the entire county transportation system.

Through new and innovative methods of participation, such as, YOU can help shape the county’s transportation plan! is being used to ask people like you – residents and commuters who know the transportation system best – what your thoughts are on different topics concerning our transportation system: What do you consider is the most critical need for Pinellas County’s transportation system today?

Within each topic, web users have the ability to suggest ideas, agree with others’ ideas they support, and provide insight on how residents and commuters will be affected by the plan.

Some topics currently on the site include:

• Important needs for the county’s transportation system
