The Casper Area MPO provides cooperative, comprehensive, and continuous transportation planning to the Casper urbanized area. The Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration provide grants that cover over 90% of costs related to transportation planning projects in Casper. These funds require a local match and are administered by a board of elected and senior administrative officials from each local government in the Casper Area.
The MPO is governed by the Policy Committee. Currently, MPO member agencies include Bar Nunn, Casper, Evansville, Mills, Natrona County, and WYDOT. The Casper/Natrona County International Airport and the Casper Area Transportation Coalition are also non-voting members.

Policy Committee members receive professional guidance through the Technical Committee. Each jurisdiction sends planners, engineers, or public works officials to discuss the technical aspects of projects.
The governing council of each agency sends individuals to the Citizens Committee. This group of individuals consists of individuals interested in transportation and who offer a resident’s perspective on MPO projects. They also act as community ambassadors for the various projects.
