About the OMSC

The Oregon Modeling Statewide Collaborative (OMSC) began in 1996 as a peer review group for the Oregon Department of Transportation's Modeling Improvement Program.  Since the OMSC was first convened, participating agencies saw a need for collaboration as analysis tools were developed by different transportation and planning organizations around the state.  The OMSC allows Oregon to leverage the collective strengths and experiences of multiple agencies when developing new transportation analysis tools, associated data, and research.


The OMSC is a voluntary staff-level technical collaborative.  

We do not direct or recommend public policy.

  • Oregon Department of Transportation
