Discussion Of Transit Subcommittee (Action)
At the Transit Subcommittee meeting, members discussed the status of the Transit Subcommittee. Federal regulations require MPO's to address all forms of transportation on an equal basis (roadway transportation, public transportation, and non-motorized transportation). Subcommittee members came to a consensus that the Technical Advisory Committee focus on Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) focused transportation planning and funding. The Transit Subcommittee would become the Transit Committee and focus on public transit planning and oversight of federal transit grant funding. Both Committees would focus on their area of expertise independently, collaborate on transportation issues of shared interest, and both report directly to the Policy Committee.
ACTION: Contingent upon wishes of PC membership, approve the Transit Subcommittee become a full Committee which answers directly to the Policy Committee.
