Advisory Committees



We accept application for all committees every day and will notify applicants when there are openings. 

The RTC is committed to community participation in all of its programs. As a part of this community participation, citizen and governmental advisory committees meet monthly to give the RTC input on current issues. 

The RTC Board of Commissioners

The Regional Transportation Commission is a cooperative regional board comprised of five representatives appointed from three government jurisdictions.

Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC)

On November 19, 2010, the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) and the Public Transportation Advisory Committee (PTAC) merged.  Committee membership shall initially be comprised of current members of the CAC and the PTAC.  As terms expire, members will not be reappointed until such time as the committee is at 15 members.  The committee provides input to the RTC on policy issues relative to public transportation, the regional street and highway system, and multimodal transportation planning.   

The CAC meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30 pm in the RTC Board Room, 2050 Villanova Drive in Reno, except when otherwise noted. RTC RIDE Route 19. 

Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC)

The Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) is composed of 12 members providing input on bicycle and pedestrian issues.

The BPAC normally meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm in the RTC Board Room, 2050 Villanova Drive in Reno, except when otherwise noted. RTC RIDE Route 19.

Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)

 The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is composed of 12 representatives from:

  • Planning and Public Works Department from Reno, Sparks and Washoe County
  • Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency
  • Nevada Department of Transportation
  • Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority
  • Federal Highway Administration--Nevada Division (Ex officio)
  • Washoe County District Health Department/Air Quality Management Division 

The TAC meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 9:00 am in the RTC Planning Conference Room, Suite 201, 1105 Terminal Way, in Reno, except when otherwise noted. RTC RIDE Route 19

Blue Ribbon Committee (BRC) for Transit

Building on the Vision for Transit developed as part of the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan and the Transit Connections 2013 Summit, the Blue Ribbon Committee for Transit is the next step to take an in-depth look at how to address unmet transit needs in the region. The committee, which was formed in July 2014, is comprised of influential business and community leaders and meets once a month.  The committee may ultimately make recommendations to the RTC Board of Commissioners in early 2015.
