Professionals at all levels need resources that help them gather knowledge, build their skills, and stay "ahead of the curve." The Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) Program responds to this need by organizing, facilitating, and documenting events in order to share noteworthy practices among agencies facing an increasingly complex transportation planning environment.
The TPCB Peer Program is a free resource for agencies in need of transportation planning assistance. The program pays for travel, accommodations, meals, and incidental expenses associated with on-site peer exchanges and offers workshops, roundtables, and webinars to participants free of charge.
