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

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.
