MTC maintains an extensive database, in machine readable and hard copy forms, to support regional transportation planning. These various data files, as well as maps and other graphic pieces, are public records, and MTC welcomes their use by the planning community throughout the region.

MTC technical data is collected and analyzed by MTC staff. Projections based on the data are prepared as part of a continuing process at a level of detail required for regional transportation planning. The appropriate use of such data in other planning programs and studies must be determined entirely by the planners and analysts of the firm or agency undertaking such projects. MTC makes no warranties, expressed or implied, of the appropriateness or accuracy of any results or opinions derived from any project not conducted or sponsored by MTC utilizing MTC's technical data.
