About the TPO

The TPO is the agency responsible for transportation planning in the Ocala/Marion County area. Comprised of local elected officials from Marion County and the cities of Ocala, Belleview and Dunnellon, the TPO's planning responsibilities include highways and transit as well as bicycling and pedestrian facilities. The TPO works with the Florida Department of Transportation and local governments to fund and implement projects identified through various plans developed by the TPO. The TPO is also the policy board for SunTran, the local fixed-route transit system.
