Rural Transportation Advisory Committee

Rural Transportation Advisory Committee

The Northern Tier Rural Transportation Advisory Committee (RTAC) at the NTRPDC plays a pivotal role in facilitating sustainable and efficient transportation solutions for the communities in our five-county region. This committee serves as a link between local governments, transportation agencies, and community stakeholders, offering valuable insights and recommendations for transportation planning initiatives.

About the RTAC

The RTAC contributes to the identification of critical transportation needs, advocates for funding and infrastructure improvements, and ensures that our area is adequately represented in transportation decision-making processes. By fostering collaboration and prioritizing the unique challenges faced by rural regions, the RTAC helps create safer, more accessible, and well-connected transportation networks, for residents in the Northern Tier region. This committee meets bi-monthly and is comprised of three voting members from each of the five counties, as well as, representation of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
