The Triangle Mobility Action Partnership (Tri-MAP) serves as an ongoing forum to help increase understanding and build consensus among elected officials, transportation partners and the regional business community regarding key transportation challenges.

Tri-MAP affords participants a periodic solution-oriented dialogue to help identify potential pitfalls and opportunities in the advancement of our region’s mobility agenda.  Individual Tri-MAP participants cooperatively provide the information, guidance and insights needed to help the region develop sound transportation policy and outreach strategies.

The Regional Transportation Alliance business coalition coordinates the quarterly meetings of the Triangle Mobility Action Partnership.  Mike McBrierty with Biogen, RTA 2017 Legislative and Policy Chair, and Maeve Gardner with GlaxoSmithKline, RTA 2017 Legislative and Policy vice chair, facilitate the meetings.
