Pima Association of Governments, along with some of its member jurisdictions, regularly collect traffic counts on major roads and intersections throughout the region. Traffic counts are vital input used in PAG’s transportation planning and travel forecasting. Others who use traffic count information include:
- Transportation engineers and planners throughout the region to identify existing traffic problems and solutions.
- The Arizona State Legislature and U.S. Congress to make decisions regarding the need for and allocation of state and federal funds.
- Regional, state and federal air quality experts to monitor traffic-related pollutants and conformance with air quality standards.
- Private sector marketing specialists as measures of accessibility and exposure.
PAG annually compiles traffic counts collected throughout eastern Pima County.
