Transportation Planning / AMATS

Welcome to AMATS!

AMATS is the acronym for Anchorage Metropolitan Area Transportation Solutions, the federally recognized Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).

As a multiagency team AMATS works to plan, fund, and coordinate the transportation system in the Anchorage Bowl and Chugiak-Eagle River areas when federal funds are used.

These federal funds are generated from gasoline taxes paid by the motoring public. The State of Alaska Legislature authorizes appropriations and general obligation bonds. Additional funding is generated by local municipal bonds, as well.
