Multimodal Transportation

Multimodal transportation networks provide safe, sustainable travel for all users and differing levels of mobility. Comprehensive multimodal planning is accomplished through several of our programs.

Active Transportation

Walking and biking have positive benefits on the environment, economic development, health, safety and overall quality of life for residents within the region.

The Alliance for Transportation Working in Communities

The Alliance for Transportation Working in Communities (ATWIC) ensures the most vulnerable populations in the ten-county region have reliable and affordable access to services, jobs, medical care, grocery shopping, skills training, and places for social interaction.

ATWIC relies on a coalition of stakeholders (The Alliance) for its expertise and willingness to bring about change in the regional transportation network.

Freight

Recognizing the role of freight in local economic development, we assist in attracting emerging industries, building enhanced connections to the global marketplace, and protecting mobility options to our commercial and industrial partners.

SPC uses information gained from its Freight Forum in the design and implementation of freight-specific roadway improvements, and in the evaluation of applications for state and federal grant funding.
