Area Commissions on Transportation
What is an ACT?
Area Commissions on Transportation are advisory bodies chartered by the Oregon Transportation Commission. ACTs address all aspects of transportation (surface, marine, air, and transportation safety) with primary focus on the state transportation system. ACTs consider regional and local transportation issues if they affect the state system. They work with other local organizations dealing with transportation-related issues.
 
ACTs play a key advisory role in the development of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, which schedules funded transportation projects. ACTs establish a public process for area project selection priorities for the STIP. Through that process and following adopted project eligibility criteria, they prioritize transportation problems and solutions and recommend projects in their area to be included in the STIP.
  
ACTs are represented on the STIP Stakeholder Committee that is charged with developing the project eligibility criteria for the STIP.
 
In 1996, the OTC authorized regionally based transportation advisory commissions known as Area Commissions on Transportation or ACTs in order to expand opportunities for local citizen involvement in ODOT’s decision making. The OTC responded to local jurisdictions and other stakeholders asking for more opportunity to participate in the early stages of transportation project selection.
