York Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (YAMPO)

What YAMPO Is

PennDOT chartered the York Area Transportation Study in 1964 and is now called York Area Metropolitan Planning Organization or better known as YAMPO.  YAMPO is the decision-making body for all transportation-related projects in York County that use federal funding. The staff consists of the YCPC Transportation Planning Division and PennDOT.   YAMPO’s committees ensure that YCPC and PennDOT complete federally required planning tasks in a comprehensive, coordinated, and continuing work program.

Committees

Three committees govern YAMPO:

  • The Technical Committee reviews and recommends non-transit plans and projects to the Coordinating Committee
  • The Transit Committee reviews and recommends transit-related plans and projects to the Coordinating Committee
  • The Coordinating Committee is the final decision-making body and acts upon recommendations from the Technical and Transit Committees
