Across the U.S., TIM programs are realizing significant benefits in terms of improved incident response, interagency coordination, and a reduction in regional congestion thanks to the involvement of their respective Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs). As a result, interest continues to grow among members of the TIM community where an MPO is not currently involved. And, with this interest may come various questions: What exactly is the MPO’s role in administering a TIM program? What benefits does an MPO provide? How is it decided if an MPO should be involved?

Topics in this article include an overview of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission’s (DVRPC) TIM Program’s Incident Management Task Forces, several regional TIM Guidelines, training information, DVRPC’s role and tips for success for MPOs, funding opportunities, and several resources.
