Advisory Committees

Advisory Committees

Advisory Committees have been established by the Transportation Council’s Policy Board to allow for public input into the region’s federal transportation planning process. They are ongoing forums, led by Transportation Council staff, open to anyone interested in participating to discuss topics of mutual interest and advise the Transportation Council staff. Meetings serve as networking opportunities, allowing participants to coordinate and collaborate, share local planning practices, share updates on Capital Region initiatives, and provide feedback on Transportation Council planning activities.
