12-Year Program (TYP) Public Forum
The State Transportation Commission conducts an Online Public Forum every two years as part of the 12-Year Program (TYP) update Public Comment Period.
The purpose of the Public Forum is to provide a convenient way to discuss current transportation issues and answer your transportation questions live.
The first Online Public Forum for the TYP update was broadcast as a webinar in 2013 as part of the public outreach modernization effort. Since then, Public Forums were broadcast in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2021 as part of each TYP update. In 2019 and 2021, the Public Forum was also streamed through Facebook Live to provide easier accessibility and wider participation.
What happens during the Public Forum?
The one-hour-long Public Forum typically begins with a presentation by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), the State Transportation Commissioners, and the Secretary of Transportation. They present Pennsylvania’s recent transportation accomplishments and upcoming goals. After the presentation, the floor is opened to answer participants' questions. After the Public Forum, a list of submitted questions and answers is made available for public review. View the 2019 Online Public Forum questions and answers.

The meeting is held every two years. The next one will take place in 2023 as part of the next TYP update public comment period. Join our email list to receive notifications about public meetings.
