The New York-New Jersey-Connecticut region contains the largest and most complex transportation system in the U.S. It comprises hundreds of governmental jurisdictions, each with its own distinct mission, and each exerting its own level of authority over various sections of the regional transportation network. The article describes TRANSCOM, a mechanism used by the involved public agencies to serve the regional travelers. TRANSCOM is a coalition of 14 highway, transit, and public safety agencies that are responsible for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods in the three-state region. It was created in 1986 to provide a cooperative, coordinated approach to transportation management. In addition, on behalf of its members, TRANSCOM is a testbed for intelligent transportation systems (ITS).
