Since CTRMA was created, they have developed brilliant strategies to decongest roads in Texas. The mobility authority has grown from having no projects underway to constructing a number of toll roads and constructing lanes to expand already existing roads. The agency has also come up with an app that helps to sensitize people on the best times to travel.

They also have an app, CARMA which helps to connect drives with the same commutes. The two apps have helped to ensure that locals contribute to decongestion in their roads.

CTRMA today boasts of a Highway Emergency Response Operator that helps to clear the way so as to get traffic flowing. This is by coming to the help of stranded motorists, evacuating disabled cars and even clearing debris.
