The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) supports all forms of transportation and is responsible for planning, building and maintaining Wisconsin’s network of state and interstate highways. WisDOT plans, promotes and financially supports statewide air, rail and water transportation, as well as bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The department shares the costs of building and operating local transportation systems – from highways to public transit.
WisDOT provides driver and motor vehicle services to approximately eight million customers annually via in-person, phone and electronic services. The Wisconsin State Patrol enforces traffic and criminal laws; helps motorists in need; inspects trucks, school buses and ambulances; and helps local law enforcement agencies with natural disasters or civil disturbances.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation MAPSS Performance Improvement program focuses on the five core goals and associated performance measures that guide us in achieving our mission "to provide leadership in the development and operation of a safe and efficient transportation system." Establishing goals and measuring results is essential to running a successful and efficient organization and meeting public expectations.
