 Planning, Policy and Program Development Committee

The APTA Planning, Policy and Program Development Committee's mission is

  • to advance the practice and quality of public transit planning at the system and corridor level
  • to improve the decision making in the planning and operations of transit systems
  • and to facilitate and expand transit's link to sustainable development.

Through the subcommittees, members develop and respond to federal and local policy initiatives affecting the transportation planning process. Members also assist in the development of planning sessions at APTA conferences.
