The City of Bloomington Plan Commission was designated as the MPO for the Bloomington Urbanized Area by Governor Robert Orr in 1982. At that time, it was called the Bloomington Area Transportation Study (BATS), but recently adopted the new name of Bloomington/Monroe County MPO (BMCMPO). The City Planning Department serves as the staff agency for BMCMPO.
BMCMPO is comprised of a partnership of local governments and transportation service providers. MPO members include the City of Bloomington, Monroe County, the Town of Ellettsville, Indiana University, and the Bloomington Public Transportation Corporation. The MPO coordinates regional transportation planning efforts among these groups.
