Transportation Policy Board

The Transportation Policy Board, or TPB, governs the policymaking and programming decisions for the federally-recognized seven-county Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, or MPO. The TPB is empowered to serve as the primary forum for collaboration among local communities, state officials, and interested parties related to regional transportation policies, plans, programs, and funding across its metropolitan planning area.

The TPB is empowered to act independently of the Council in the adoption of policies, plans, and programs as permitted by state or federal law or regulation (ref. Section 3 of the GNRC Bylaws). The Policy Board maintains separate bylaws and has a formal agreement with GNRC's governing body for how the associated programming will be administered and staffed.

Transportation Policy Board Membership

TPB consists of elected officials representing Davidson, Maury, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Wilson, and Williamson counties, as well as cities in those counties with a population of over 5,000. Additional board members include the Governor and an elected official from GNRC.
