Transportation Advisory Committee

TAC Mission

The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) was established by the University on April 11, 1991. The University Transportation Advisory Committee is to be administrative, with actions in the form of recommendations to the President or his designee.

The committee will assume tasks previously undertaken by the Public Safety Committee regarding campus transportation issues. Their work will involve parking, campus and vicinity traffic management, the campus shuttle service, alternative transportation activities including bicycles, car and van pooling, and coordination with transit agencies.

The University Transportation Advisory Committee shall be the principal campus body responsible for recommending to the President or his designee policy on all aspects of campus transportation, including:

  • Review and critique existing transportation programs;

  • Explore and recommend new programs and modification or elimination of existing ones;

  • Recommend priorities for use of parking fines and forfeitures revenue;

  • Aid in the development of policy proposals, fee schedules and other matters related to the conduct of a comprehensive transportation management program.


Appointments to the committee are made by the Vice President for Administration. Membership for faculty, staff and community members shall be for a period of three (3) years, staggered to insure continuity. Students shall be appointed annually. The Vice President for Administration shall have the option of reappointing members to additional terms. Recommendations for membership from campus constituencies should consider the backgrounds of the persons selected, with a focus on transportation and environmental disciplines and on balancing members between those who routinely use public transportation or other alternative modes and those who drive to campus. The committee will select a Chair. The campus Facility Planning Director, Parking Administrator and Public Safety Director will serve as Ex Officio members. The composition of the committee will be as follows:

  • Two (2) Faculty Members recommended by the Faculty Senate, 3-year term.
