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 surface and air transportation opportunities and challenges. The Regional Transportation Alliance business coalition coordinates the semi-annual Tri-MAP meetings.

Tri-MAP affords participants a periodic solution-oriented dialogue to help identify potential success pathways as well as pitfalls 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.
