Public transportation group's quarterly meeting planned for Oct. 15

The Public Transportation Advisory Council (PTAC) will hear a performance report on how Idaho’s public transit providers are doing and how reorganization within public transportation will better reflect a grassroots approach to customer service Wednesday, Oct. 15.

The meeting will be from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Idaho Transportation Department’s (ITD) District 3 Office, 8150 Chinden Blvd., in Garden City.

PTAC members will hear about the member-selection process for filling a vacancy currently within the group representing north-central Idaho. They also will hear recommendations for creating a mobility management planning task force.

A historical overview of FTA transit dollars will be presented, along with plans for moving forward.

The meeting is open to the public.

The PTAC was created to advise the ITD on issues related to public transportation. It is composed of six members, one representing each of ITD’s administrative districts.

A teleconference of the meeting is available. The public is invited to participate by calling (888) 706-6468 toll free and entering participant code 64827943.
