Public Transit Advisory Board
The Public Transit Advisory Board consists of appointed members of the community and exists to advise the assembly and the mayor, as well as to contribute to the long range planning of a balanced public transit system in the municipality.
The board meets the second Thursday of every month, and the public is encouraged to attend to stay up to date on public transportation news and provide feedback to the board.

Anchorage Metropolitan Area Transportation Solutions (AMATS)
AMATS is the acronym for Anchorage Metropolitan Area Transportation Solutions. Every metropolitan area with a population of more than 50,000 residents must have a designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for transportation in order to qualify for federal highway or transit assistance. AMATS is the MPO for the Anchorage Bowl and Chugiak-Eagle River areas when federal transportation funds are used.
Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
The TIP is the region’s short range project plan for transportation improvements. It outlines the investment program of capital improvements to the metropolitan transportation system. The TIP is the means of implementing the goals and objectives of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Additionally, the TIP process is used to satisfy the public participation process of the Program of Projects (POP) that is required in U.S.C. Section 5307.
