Air Quality Planning
Under the Clean Air Acts, DRCOG has responsibilities to ensure its transportation plans and programs support air quality goals and meet air quality standards. DRCOG is required to show the fiscally constrained Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) help support our region's efforts to maintain or improve air quality before they are adopted or amended.

Air Quality and Metro Vision
Metro Vision calls upon the region to reduce its transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions and a number of DRCOG transportation programs actively support that goal, including Way to Go, transportation demand management, signal timing, bicycle and pedestrian planning, and transit planning.
