Transportation Advisory Committee Members Needed

SRTC is the lead agency for all of Spokane County when it comes to making transportation decisions. Our Board is made up of elected officials and others from all around the area who take on the big transportation issues and set policies.

They don't do it alone though. The Citizens Advisory Committee (TAC) advises the Board on the agency's plans, programs and activities, helps develop and review transportation policies, and provides transparency and a community perspective. 

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.

TAC members serve three year terms and the group meets six times a year, every other month. 

TAC applications and more information on the committee are available at http://www.srtc.org/tac_page.html. The application period ends at 4 p.m. November 10.
