Technical Advisory Committee

You are here: About YMPO | Technical Advisory Committee

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is a technical staff that is represented by each of the participating agencies and there may be one or more ex-officio non-voting representatives each from FHWA, FTA, YCIPTA, Yuma County Airport Authority, and the Quechan Indian Tribe. The TAC provides recommendations to YMPO staff and to the Executive Board. Both the Board and TAC work on transportation planning utilizing tax-based initiatives and federal funding to resolve issues such as traffic congestion.

The Robert A. Vaughan Express (RAVE or SR 195), 3E3 Traffic Interchange, Pathways, and YCAT are excellent examples of effective transportation planning to reduce traffic congestion and improve conditions for cars, pedestrians, buses, and bikes.
