Committees

To support the SEFTC mission, there is a staff-level advisory committee, and three staff-level subcommittees that inform the SEFTC on technical issues.

Regional Transportation Technical Advisory Committee

The Regional Transportation Technical Advisory Committee (RTTAC) meets quarterly to address many of the issues brought before the SEFTC.  Staffed by the three MPOs, FDOT, Florida Turnpike Enterprise, Miami-Dade Expressway Authority, the four area transit agencies (including SFRTA), Port Everglades, and the two Regional Planning Councils, the group recommends technical decisions to the SEFTC and is responsible for the development of the RTP.
