Metro is seeking applicants for citizen positions on the Transportation Policy Alternatives Committee and the Regional Travel Options subcommittee:
The Transportation Policy Alternatives Committee (TPAC) and Regional Travel Options (RTO) Subcommittee are currently seeking community representatives to serve two-year terms beginning January 2009. Three seats on TPAC and one seat on the RTO Subcommittee are currently vacant.
TPAC provides technical input to the Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation (JPACT) that, in turn, makes recommendations on transportation planning issues to the Metro Council. The RTO Subcommittee makes recommendations to TPAC, JPACT and the Metro council on programs that provide alternatives to driving alone in our region; including carpool, vanpool, transit, walking, biking and telecommuting programs.
Both committees seek individuals with strong interest or expertise in transportation related issues and who can commit to attending regular meetings held during normal working hours.
