The mission of the Mobility Authority is to innovate strategies that can be exploited to manage the flow of traffic using advanced technology. Since congestion cannot be fully eliminated as the MoPac footprint is not huge enough, any persons who require attending a concert or a job interview will have a dependable commuter. This corporation has collaborated with Metropia so as to develop a mobile traffic application that is incorporated with the traffic monitoring system. Therefore, commuters can easily access and identify real-time substitute routes.
