MPOs play a role in transit planning, sometimes taking the lead, and in other cases providing assistance to their transit operators. The larger metropolitan areas have regional transit authorities, while transit systems in smaller MPO regions are operated by counties or other local governments.

The Transit Working Group provides a forum for transit planners from MPOs, New York State DOT, and the Federal Transit Administration Region 2 to share information and current practices.
