Under the Clean Air Act, DRCOG staff are responsible for ensuring the region's transportation plans and programs support air quality goals and meet air quality standards.

DRCOG is required to publish the Regional Transportation Plan and Transportation Improvement Program, which support the 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, initiatives and plans actively support that goal, including Way to Go, transportation demand management, bicycle and pedestrian planning and transit planning.
