The committee also assists in monitoring and reporting on the progress of funded projects.

Membership

The committee consists of state, local government and public works officials, transit representatives, members of the Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and community representatives with educational backgrounds or professional experience in health, environmental engineering, historic or community preservation, or serving the transportation needs of elementary school-aged children.
