Local Transportation Survey

The Metropolitan Area Planning Agency (MAPA) now has a Long Range Transportation Plan survey available for the public to complete. The responses from this survey will be used in updating the Long Range Transportation Plan for the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area for year 2035.

Residents of the 5-county MAPA region (Washington, Sarpy, Douglas, Pottawattamie, and Mills) can go to and find the link for the survey on the homepage of the website. The 15 question survey covers a multitude of transportation topics and respondents can use this as a platform to make suggestions about the future of transportation in the metro area.

The MAPA Long Range Transportation Plan will provide a vision for the metropolitan area’s future transportation system. Additionally, projects must be identified in the Long Range Plan to be eligible to receive federal funding.

Please tell about the survey. MAPA would like as many responses as possible in order to get the best information and suggestions about transportation in the area.

Also, the Greater Omaha Young Professionals Council is also hosting a survey about MAT and the bus system in the area. Please go to to complete this survey.

These tools are both great ways to express your thoughts about transportation in the area. MAPA and YPC hopes you take advantage of them and tell others! Thanks in advance for completing the survey and spreading the word!
