The Houston-Galveston Area Council is creating a plan that lays out the area’s transportation needs over the next 25 years. The 2040 RTP (Regional Transportation Plan) lays out the latest update to a continuous planning process that includes the eight central counties of the Houston-Galveston region.

We talk with Alan Clark, Director of Transportation Planning at the council, and Houston Public Media transportation reporter Gail Delaughter about priorities for the region, and what residents are saying they want by 2040. (For the record, the Houston Matters team wants flying cars).
