On October 27, 2015, the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan was adopted by the Council. On November 6, 2015, the Plan was shared with the region during an interactive “Rollout” event where transportation agencies rode Tri-Rail for the day sharing the Plan with commuters and travelers. Riding the train to three separate events, one in Boca Raton, Dania Beach, and Miami, attendees heard from key speakers to learn more about transportation agencies and investments in the region.

As a result of the 2000 U.S. census, the Miami Urbanized Area encompasses parts of the Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties.

The 2015 SEFTC Meeting Calendar may be found by clicking the link below. Individual meeting details are posted on the "Meetings" page one week in advance of a meeting.
After several years of ad hoc cooperation, the Southeast Florida Transportation Council was created, under Florida Statutes Chapter 339. 175, to serve as a formal forum for policy coordination and communication to carry out these regional initiatives agreed upon by the MPOs from Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties. An interlocal agreement between the three parties was completed in 2005 paving the way for the first SEFTC meeting in January 2006. The three SEFTC members and their alternates are listed under the "Members" section. To track the achievements and progress being made through this regional group, please view the Regional Reports found under the "Regional Information" section.
Staff support to the SEFTC is provided by the respective MPO on a continuous basis. The Regional Transportation Technical Advisory Committee (RTTAC) is a staff-level working group tasked to address many of the issues brought before the SEFTC. The RTTAC is made up of the major transportation planning agencies within the region including the Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organizations.
The SEFTC is also supported by a staff-level working group that focuses on travel demand modeling. This group is referred to as the Regional Transportation Technical Advisory (RTTAC) Modeling Subcommittee and consists of modeling experts from various agencies throughout the region. As implied by their title, this group collectively determines guidelines, policies, and technical applications for travel demand modeling activities in the Southeast Region.
The third SEFTC-supporting staff-level working group is the Regional Public Participation Subcommittee which is filled by the Public Information Officer from Broward MPO, Miami-Dade MPO, Palm Beach MPO and the Florida Department of Transportation Districts Four and Six. Their focus is on regional-level public involvement activities in Southeast Florida.
