TPA Public Involvement Opportunities
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status. Members of the public are encouraged to attend and offer comments at all meetings of the TPA Governing Board, its advisory committees, and the Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordinating Board, as well as any special meetings, workshops or public events. Please check the website calendar for schedules, and note that the calendar can be sorted by categories.
TPA Advisory Committees
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is made up of technical staff representing the various local governments within Palm Beach County, primarily planners and engineers. The TAC is responsible for reviewing and evaluating transportation-related plans and programs before these items are presented to the TPA Board.
The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is responsible for providing the MPO Board with a "citizen's eye" view of ongoing transportation issues in Palm Beach County. Because one of the base missions of the MPO is to gather local input and desires for transportation within the County, this committee is an important conduit for serving these public interests and submitting their views and concerns to the TPA Governing Board.
The Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee - BTPAC, is responsible for advising and informing the TPA Board regarding bicycle and pedestrian issues in Palm Beach County.
The LCB focuses on the needs of Palm Beach County’s transportation disadvantaged population, specifically older adults, persons with disabilities, persons of low income and children at-risk. The primary responsibilities of the LCB are to plan for and evaluate the paratransit service provided by Palm Tran Connection, the local Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC) for Palm Beach County. The LCB meets on a quarterly basis and reviews price and service levels, safety concerns, eligibility and other pertinent issues.
