HATS Seeks Chamber & CREDC Members’ Input on Region’s Transportation Needs

Posted On On: February 2, 2018 Categories Filed Under: Member News


The Harrisburg Area Transportation Study (HATS) is currently updating the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and would like to hear from CREDC’s membership.

The RTP is the long-range transportation plan for Cumberland, Dauphin & Perry counties. It determines how we will:

  • prepare for an increase in cars & trucks;
  • manage congestion & traffic safety;
  • make our roads & bridges the best they can be;
  • get our goods from one place to another;
  • provide convenient public transit;
  • accommodate bike riders & pedestrians;
  • keep our rail traffic flowing;
  • improve our airports;
  • offer access to the disabled & elderly;
  • protect our environment;
  • and so much more.

HATS welcomes suggestions and comments. To make your voice heard on any of these issues, visit: www.tcrpc-pa.org/rtp.


HATS is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties and their 103 municipalities. It works with federal, state and local agencies from throughout South-Central Pennsylvania, including the City of Harrisburg and Capital Area Transit, to meet the transportation needs of an area covering nearly 1,700 square miles.
