The region is a component of the Census-defined Bridgeport-Stamford Urbanized Area. The Region is, in many respects, a "metropolitan area in motion." Each day, almost one million trips are made to, from and within the Region. This travel reflects the daily activities of its residents, and, in broader perspective, the Region's economy. How well it takes place is an important measure of the Region's vitality.
