Which metropolitan area has the best Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in the country?

A few good ones I'm aware of are MTC in the Bay Area, PSRC in Seattle, DRCOG in Denver, and SANDAG in San Diego.

MTC, one of the few agencies that joins all of greater San Francisco under one umbrella.

I've heard that the Met Council in the Twin Cities is good because it acts as one cohesive unit for the cities within the metro.

I second Met Council in the Twin Cities and would add Metro in Portland.

Oh yeah, totally Portland. In fact, wouldn't they probably be the best, or one of the best?

Portland and Twin Cities are totally on top. I actually vote for Twin Cities' Metropolitan Council on top because they control more that Portland Metro. They both do a fantastic job though.

What's going on with SANDAG? They don't seem to be as efficient and organized as they used to be. They were a powerhouse in the 90s.
