Pima Association of Governments, which incorporated in 1970 and was designated as a metropolitan planning organization in 1973, has four main program areas: transportation planning, environmental planning, energy planning and technical services.
The Transportation Planning Division conducts long-range and short-range transportation planning for the Pima County region. The division also is responsible for travel demand management activities, such as Sun Rideshare and the Travel Reduction Program, operations and safety programs, bicycle and pedestrian programs, and coordinating and supporting intermodal transportation systems.
The Sustainable Environment Division conducts air quality and water quality planning, promotes travel demand strategies through Sun Rideshare and PAG's travel reduction program and educates the public about clean fuel alternatives through the U.S. Department of Energy funded Clean Cities program.
The Technical Services Division generates transportation modeling, traffic counts, population projections, and GIS maps and aerial photos of the region for regional planning applications.
