Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BTPAC)

Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BTPAC)

BTPAC 2/6/2020The Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BTPAC) is responsible for advising and informing the TPA Board regarding bicycle and pedestrian issues in Palm Beach County.

Enactment of the 1984 Florida Bicycle Bill required all county and local municipal governments to give full consideration of the bicycle when planning and developing transportation. Florida became one of the nation's leaders in bicycle planning with the creation of a State Bicycle Office, Bicycle Coordinators in each FDOT District, and Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinators in a number of counties, including Palm Beach. In Palm Beach County, a bicycle-pedestrian advisory committee was formed in 1987, and later expanded to include greenways issues.


Typically, meetings are held on the first Thursday of most months, and begin at 9:00 AM. Check the website calendar and the links below for specific meeting details including ways to join virtually, or view a live simulcast or recorded video. Meetings held in person are located at the TPA office, 301 Datura St., West Palm Beach, FL 33401. Meeting agendas and backup information are posted in advance of each meeting.
