The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) recognizes that the effective coordination of transportation and land use planning decisions is vital to Montana's long-term economic growth and fiscal well-being. In Montana, as in most states, land use regulations and many transportation-related decisions are matters of local governance. This Toolkit is a result of research into best and most promising practices, guided by land use and transportation professionals across the state.

While the toolkit is maintained by MDT, its content is not a statement of Montana policy, neither in whole nor in part, nor does it represent recommended or preferred practices.

Within the toolkit you will find off-the-shelf tools: information about policies, practices, analytic methods, data sources, software, and case studies. We welcome your feedback. Use the menu bar on the left to jump right in, or learn more about using or the toolkit.
