We plan to keep you moving!
In addition to the website and periodic newsletters, the MPO periodically produces brochures that are specific to a topic or a mode of travel. For example, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Mobility Advisory Committees (BMAC and PMAC) produced bicycle and pedestrian related brochures that include the Walkable Community Program, Bicycle Safety, and Pedestrian Safety.
MPO 101: The Basics of the Alamo Area MPO
Transportation is vital to our quality of life. A good transportation system provides travel choices that serve the entire community. These choices make our community a better place to live, work, and play. Your personal involvement in the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s transportation planning process will help ensure that our community is served by an environmentally friendly transportation system where everyone is able to walk, ride, drive or wheel in a safe, convenient, and affordable manner to their desired destinations.
Walkable Community Program
In support of a multi-modal transportation system, the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has developed the Walkable Community Program. The program recognizes the need to plan for everyone and all modes of travel, whether young or old, motorist or bicyclist, walker or wheelchair user or bus rider.

Bicycle Safety: Some basic bicycling safety tips
The Bicycle Mobility Advisory Committee (BMAC) was established by the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Transportation Policy Board in 1995. The committee's purpose is to improve bicycle mobility within the San Antonio-Bexar County MPO Study Area. BMAC's vision is for the region to be distinguished as a place where cyclists can safely travel on and off-road and cycling is recognized as a clean, healthy, and affordable form of transportation and recreation.
Regional Safety Program
Safety is an important factor in transportation planning at the federal, state and local levels. There is a need for regional coordination and the Alamo Area MPO has initiated the first comprehensive safety analysis for our region. The Regional Safety Program represents a significant step forward in transportation safety planning in that it uses the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Crash Records Information System (CRIS) database.
