The Down East Rural Transportation Planning Organization serves Carteret, Craven, Jones, Onslow, and Pamlico Counties. The RPO was formed in order to more effectively funnel transportation dollars to rural areas and engage the public in the transportation planning process. The Down East RPO is one of twenty such organizations in the state.
The Down East Rural Planning Organization exists to serve as an intergovernmental organization for local elected officials, the NC Department of Transportation, and residents of its five-county region to work cooperatively to address transportation issues and to develop long-range local and regional multi-modal transportation plans to sustain and improve the quality of life for residents of the region and throughout the State of North Carolina.
