March 16, 2015 - Tucson, AZ In a proactive effort to alleviate congestion in the Tucson metropolitan area and reduce impacts on air quality in the region, Pima Association of Governments (PAG) will partner with locally owned Metropia Inc. to support the local launch of Metropia’s smart app to better manage traffic and relieve peak congestion.
