Planning an efficient transportation system for the future is an incredible challenge. This challenge is the task of the Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS), which is responsible for transportation planning in Summit and Portage counties and Chippewa Township in Wayne county.
AMATS is one of 17 regional transportation planning agencies, known as metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), in Ohio. For the past 50 years, AMATS has been committed to ensuring that transportation improvements meet the needs of the region and that federal transportation funds are used in an efficient, effective, and equitable manner.
AMATS agency website is an excellent source of information regarding transportation policies and improvements in the Greater Akron, Ohio area.
