What's New

Something’s New!

Greater Madison MPO logo


You may have noticed that our name, logo, and web address have changed. As the newly minted Greater Madison MPO (formerly Madison Area Transportation Planning Board), we are excited to begin celebrating the results of our recent rebranding.

In addition to creating a fresh, accessible new name and logo, we used the rebranding process to dig deep and define a forward-thinking mission and vision for our work in the region. We also worked with the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission, our sister agency focused on regional land use, to improve future public recognition by coordinating our brands.

We learned a lot and we are grateful to everyone who assisted us in this journey. In the coming weeks and months, we look forward to sharing how we are bringing our new identity to life.
