Coordinated Transportation Planning
The Panhandle Regional Planning Commission (PRPC) has worked towards a goal of coordinated transportation planning since the 1990s and remains a leader in coordination and cooperation between public and private transportation providers today. In 2006, the Regional Transportation Advisory Group (RTAG) was officially created in response to the Texas Legislature’s passage of HB 3588 and the Federal Transportation Administration’s (FTA) guidelines regarding the planning requirements for the (now obsolete) Job Access Reverse Commute (JARC) and New Freedom (NF) funding. Immediately, the group began working towards adopting a Regionally Coordinated Transportation Plan and in January 2007, the first iteration of that plan was adopted as a guideline for transportation planning in the Texas Panhandle. In 2011 that plan was updated following a series of public meetings and hearings and an extensive survey process. RTAG was renamed the Panhandle Regional Organization to Maximize Public Transportation (PROMPT) soon thereafter in order to more accurately reflect the group’s purpose. Quarterly meetings of PROMPT allow PROMPT members a dedicated time to discuss relevant and material transportation issues facing the citizens of the top 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle.
PROMPT is proud to serve the top 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle and the 63 cities therein.
