Public Transportation Advisory Committee Work Groups

The Public Transportation Advisory Committee utilizes work groups to develop recommendations regarding specific issues.

These work groups provide updates on progress to the Public Transportation Advisory Committee at regularly scheduled meetings or at the Chair's request. Final decisions from each work group are brought as recommendations to the Public Transportation Advisory Committee for a vote.
