What is TAG?
Transportation Advisory Groups (TAG) are one of the primary inputs planning agencies within the State of Iowa use to form their Passenger Transportation Plans (PTP). PTPs are meant to assist decision makers, elected officials, planning staff, and transportation agencies in understanding the needs of their current transportation system and identifying strategies for improving it. TAGs provide a forum to discuss transportation issues and identify opportunities to create a more coordinated transportation system that is affordable and accessible to all individuals in the community. Ideally, these discussions generate projects and actionable items that can bring the community closer to this type of transportation system.

TAG seeks to share information amongst transportation and human service stakeholders to identify transportation issues, projects, and funding, and provide education on available resources for the Passenger Transportation Plan (PTP) and transportation issues. Our work seeks to assist those with transportation barriers to identify issues leading to a better quality of life, increased mobility and accessibility, and greater access to jobs.
Have public transit which functions well, making it more accessible to the public while providing riders with greater mobility. Enable transit stakeholders to identify and solve barriers to accessing public transit.
