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.
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.
Transportation Demand Management
Transportation demand management focuses on the decisions that people and businesses make every day about how they travel. Managing travel demand involves providing travelers with information, options, and incentives that expand travel choices beyond driving alone, such as use of transit, ridesharing, bicycling, walking, and teleworking. For those who drive, it also involves shifting travel to less congested times or routes, or avoiding trips entirely in order to reduce traffic congestion, improve system efficiency, and enhance quality of life.
