The Dubuque Metropolitan Area is a tri-state Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) located at the boundary intersections of the states of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. The 2000 population for the Dubuque area was 77,018 with approximately 90% of the total population living in the Iowa portion of the region.

As the MPO, DMATS receives federal funds to develop regional transportation plans and programs and to coordinate technical and policy studies on a wide range of transportation issues, working in cooperation with the Iowa Department of Transportation (IADOT), the Illinois Department of Transportation (ILDOT), the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WIDOT),and local governments and transit providers.

DMATS transportation planning activities encompass cities of Asbury, Dubuque, and Dubuque County in Iowa; East Dubuque and Jo Daviess County in Illinois; and Jamestown Township, the unincorporated town of Kieler and Grant County in Wisconsin. (see Boundary Map)
