California state transportation agencies announced this month a call for applicants to serve on an interagency Transportation Equity Advisory Committee, convened in partnership between the California State Transportation Agency, the California Transportation Commission and Caltrans.

The Equity Advisory Committee will advise each agency on how to achieve meaningful outcomes in transportation equity, environmental justice and equitable economic opportunities, especially in transportation planning and programming.

“When it comes to transportation, ‘equity’ isn’t just some abstract concept – it’s part of the fabric of everything we’re doing to achieve our vision of a cleaner, safer, more accessible and more connected future for all Californians," said CalSTA Secretary Toks Omishakin. “This advisory committee will help guide CalSTA and our partners toward achieving that future.”

Members of the Equity Advisory Committee will review, advise, and make recommendations on transportation related plans, programs, and policies to CalSTA, the Commission, and Caltrans during public meetings. Committee membership is intended to elevate diverse and historically marginalized voices. Committee membership will consist of up to 15 members serving two-year staggered terms.
