What Is The STPP?

900x440_troy-ny-stationThe Surface Transportation Policy Partnership (STPP) is a national collaborative working to ensure safer communities and smarter transportation choices that enhance the economy, improve public health, promote social equity, and protect the environment.

STPP monitors trends, emerging issues, needs, and new policy proposals related to the planning and implementation of transportation in the United States. Of particular interest are issues related to safety, the environment, sound asset management, planning, and public policy.3745064_m

The STPP Forum periodically convenes a diverse group of individuals (most with decades of experience in transportation) to consider and assess challenges to the continued progress of transportation reform. The Blog Starter encourages open discussion of the issues, but does not take positions on behalf of STPP.

In addition, STPP manages two on-going initiatives: the OneRail Coalition and the National Park Service (NPS) Transportation Project.
