The Policy Committee makes difficult decisions in a cooperative manner. However, the Policy Committee’s responsibilities do not begin and end with making decisions. Policy members are responsible to the residents of the region for the quality of transportation services and for the impact of transportation on their overall quality of life. Policy Committee members share the responsibility for making sure that the major transportation issues of today and tomorrow are dealt with fairly and properly.
