Moving Dutchess 2 represents the sixth long-range, Metropolitan Transportation Plan of the Poughkeepsie-Dutchess County Transportation Council (PDCTC)-continuing a 30-year tradition of strategic transportation planning in Dutchess County. From its designation in 1982 as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Poughkeepsie Metropolitan Area, to its present role in the three-county Mid-Hudson Valley Transportation Management Area (TMA), the PDCTC has sought to meet the various transportation planning needs of Dutchess County and its communities. This goal has been at the core of previous Transportation Plans and endures with Moving Dutchess 2. 

With a planning horizon year of 2040, Moving Dutchess 2 identifies strategies and recommendations to preserve the existing transportation system and meet future travel demands over the next 25-years in Dutchess County. These strategies and recommendations influence the types of projects pursued in the five-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the planning studies supported by the annual Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). To meet this objective, the Transportation Council identified four planning principles that  provided the framework for how the Transportation Plan was developed and organized: 1) Relevant, 2) Sustainable, 3) Targeted, and 4) Inclusive. These principles, carried over from the original Moving Dutchess, were based on a review of existing laws and guidance, and an understanding of how the federally-supported, metropolitan transportation planning process is applied at the State, regional, and local level. Moving Dutchess 2 follows the format used in the previous Transportation Plan, with chapters covering essential aspects of the transportation planning process:
