About Us

Who We Are

We are employees who face longer commutes to and from work every day, taking away precious time with loved ones.

We are business leaders who lose more than $4 billion annually in wasted productivity and fuel.

We are elected officials and citizens worried about air quality and safety in our communities.

We are TRTC – a broad-based, non-profit group committed to finding solutions to the mobility challenges facing the western half of the DFW Metroplex.

Our goal is to spur conversation amongst friends, neighbors, business colleagues, local leaders and state government officials about our region’s urgent mobility needs – roadways, commuter rail and freight rail. Through these conversations, a unified voice can emerge, leading to increased investment in transportation and more efficient movement of people and goods across the western half of the Metroplex.

What We Do

To secure the efficient movement of goods and people across the western half of the Metroplex, TRTC undertakes several initiatives:

  • Monthly Meetings. Concerned citizens, business leaders and elected officials meet monthly for insider briefings from key transportation agencies and special guest presenters. We share ideas about solving the mobility crisis and taking action. Learn when and where you can join us or view past presentations.
  • Legislative Advocacy. TRTC maintains an ongoing dialogue with elected officials – visiting with legislators, sending delegations to Austin, holding town-hall-style forums that offer access to dignitaries, and orchestrating letter-writing campaigns to influence critical issues. Help ensure that your elected officials hear the case for transportation investment – loud and clear.
  • Public Education. To improve mobility, we need the support of the people – citizens, business leaders and landowners. That’s why we devote many resources to galvanizing our neighbors, colleagues and friends – delivering presentations to community groups, holding public awareness events and staging communications campaigns. Won’t you join our conversation and help spread the word?
