VDOT’s Rural Transportation Planning Program was created by the Transportation Mobility Planning Division (TMPD) in 1993 to provide funding to the twenty rural transportation planning regions in the Commonwaelth of Virginia. Region 2000 serves as the Policy Board for this program within the planning area, with the Rural Technical Committee serving as the advisory body.

The Rural Transportation Planning Program in Region 2000 functions as a cooperative forum for transportation planning among the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (VDRPT), transportation service providers, and the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, and Campbell. While the Central Virginia Metropolitan Planning Organization has authority over the urbanized areas of Amherst, Bedford, Campbell, and the City of Lynchburg, the Rural Transportation Planning Program focuses outside of the MPO boundries to the region’s rural areas.
