The Transportation System Analysis Program provides technical and information services for the regional planning process. These services involve the tasks of collecting, maintain¬ing, analyzing, forecasting, and delivering information relevant to transportation infrastructure and travel. The information is for transporta¬tion planning and design, investment decisions, business development, location choice and research. Travel simula¬tions produced by the program assist with local highway and transit planning and design efforts as well as for MAG Regional Transportation Planning and air quality analysis.
