AZ LTAP brings together academic, governmental, and private resources, stakeholders, and information to ensure a safe, effective and efficient transportation system in the state of Arizona. By delivering new concepts and ideas, training, technical assistance and by disseminating research results and new technologies for both transportation providers and users, AZ LTAP is paving the way as a leader in transportation information exchange.
