Transit Advisory Committee

MBTA bus

About the Transit Advisory Committee

In May 2013, the City of Cambridge established a Transit Advisory Committee to advance an agenda for a robust public transportation system for those who live and/or work in Cambridge. The Committee guides Cambridge city positions and policies regarding long term sustainable funding for transit by the Commonwealth, transit expansion, service planning for modification or expansion of bus routes, and service reliability and improvements including ways to better design our street network to prioritize bus transit.

Committee membership

About a third of the Committee is composed of residents, selected in part based on geographic diversity in order to provide representation from all parts of the city; a third are representatives of institutions and a cross-section of stakeholder groups (e.g., commuters, persons with disabilities, low income, elderly, youth, and advocacy groups); and a third are representatives from large and small businesses.

Meeting dates and materials

The Committee generally meets on the first Thursday of each month from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM. View the Community Development Department Calendar for information about future meetings.
