The Transportation Advisory Committee 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:

1. Review and critique existing transportation programs;
2. Explore and recommend new programs and modification or elimination of existing ones;
3. Recommend priorities for use of parking fines and forfeitures revenue;
4. 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 President. Membership for faculty and staff shall be for a period of three (3) years, staggered to insure continuity. Students and community members shall be appointed annually. The President shall have the option of reappointing members to additional terms. The composition of the committee will be as follows.

Two (2) Faculty Members recommended by the Academic Senate

Two (2) Staff Members (campus-wide solicitation) announced in the Staff Bulletin

Two (2) Students recommended by the Associated Students, Inc. President

One (1) Community Member

One (1) Public Safety Director, or designee

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 parking administrator will serve as an ex- officio member and staff to the committee
