Welcome To Kern COG!
Kern COG is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Kern Region as designated by the Federal government, and the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA) as designated by the State of California. It is responsible for developing and updating a variety of transportation plans and for allocating the federal and state funds to implement them. While regional transportation planning is its primary role, Kern COG is also involved in other issues that affect the entire region such as air quality. Kern COG provides the forum that brings mayors, city council members and county supervisors together to work on regional issues in a setting that promotes the involvement of the public in the planning process for the Kern region.
