In 1983 and 1984, the FHWA and UMTA established formal microcomputer User Groups in each of three transportation application areas assisted by a technical Microcomputer Support Center located at the United States Department of Transportation's Transportation Systems Center (TSC) and operated primarily by contractor provided staff. The three user groups are Microcomputers in Transportation Planning (MTP), Safety and Traffic Engineering Application for Microcomputers (STEAM), and Microcomputer Applications in Highway Projects (MAHP). The purpose of this paper is to report on the status of each user group and associated support centers.
