Policy Board

Ultimate authority for all of CDTC's actions rests with the Policy Board, which operates by consensus. The Policy Board delegates authority to the Planning Committee to recommend plans and programs to the Policy Board for action. CDTC's Policy Board members are encouraged to bring forth issues and concerns at any time -- they are expected to be active participants in the process.

Policy Board meetings are open to the public.  The public is welcome to comment on transportation related issues within the Capital District.  To register to speak and/ or to request auxiliary aids or services and reasonable accommodations please contact us at: 458-2161 or cdtc@cdtcmpo.org. Request for aids, services, or reasonable accommodations must be made at least seven business days prior to the meeting.

Feel free to watch current & past Policy Board meetings on CDTC's YouTube Channel!
