The Dallas Regional Mobility Coalition (DRMC) is a transportation advocacy group made up of cities, counties and transportation agencies in a five-county region (Dallas, Denton, Collin, Rockwall and Ellis) with a primary mission to advance critical mobility projects through advocacy efforts with state and federal elected officials and regional transportation agencies.
As such, the DRMC represents local governments from the fourth largest region in the country: with over 7.0 million residents, a regional GDP of over $447 billion, 30% of the state’s overall GDP, and headquarters of 18 Fortune 500 companies. The DFW region has encountered tremendous job growth and economic success over the last several decades, which has led to exponential increases in population. Without substantial investment in transportation infrastructure, North Texas’ economic growth will not continue. Adequately investing in transportation infrastructure is a good return on our investment and a core function of government.
