The MPO supports Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) technology to reduce traffic jams, coordinate traffic signals, keep buses on schedule, improve reliability, and manage parking more efficiently.

Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSM&O) endeavors to integrate technology into the road network to provide a safe transportation system that ensures the mobility of people and goods, enhances economic prosperity, and preserves the quality of our environment and communities. For more information on TSM&O initiatives, visit the FDOT TSM&O page.

Regional Traffic Management Center

The Sarasota-Manatee Regional Traffic Management Center (RTMC) is the hub for operation, maintenance and monitoring of advanced traffic management systems in the two-county area. RTMC staff monitors and reports on traffic conditions and incidents, and promptly makes any necessary temporary traffic signal timing changes in response to ensure traffic flows more smoothly around impacted areas.
