Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS)
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 Northeastern Wayne county.
AMATS is one of 23 regional transportation planning agencies in Ohio, and one of 17 Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs). For over 60 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.
