Advisory Committee Needs New Members

If you're one of those people who say, "If it was up to me... " about transportation in our area, then you may want to join our Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC). The TAC is a citizen advisory committee focused on providing transparency and a community perspective. The TAC is responsible for advising the SRTC Board on plans, programs and activities to determine consistency with current policies; making recommendations on regional transportation policies; and other activities as directed by the SRTC Board.

We strive for a diverse makeup of TAC members. TAC Members represent the general public and groups including, but not limited to, people with disabilities, senior citizens, youth, the business and freight moving communities, traditional automobile users and advocates for non-motorized transportation or public transit. Freight and youth representatives are particularly needed at this time.

The TAC meets once a month, the fourth Monday of every month at 3 p.m. in SRTC's downtown Spokane office. For more information, or for an application to be a TAC member, here's where to go:
