Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA) is the forum for making decisions about the regional transportation system in Placer County. The decisions made are reflected in PCTPA’s planning and programming of the area’s state and federal transportation funds. In developing and adopting plans and strategies, we not only make the best use of these funds, but also fulfill the requirements of our state designation as the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA) for Placer County.

PCTPA has several state designations for transportation planning activities including:

  • Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA)
  • Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC)
  • Congestion Management Agency (CMA)

PCTPA also acts as a resource for offering services, information, and incentives to those persons interested in using alternative modes of transportation.
