Advisory Committee on Campus Transportation and Parking (ACCTP)

The committee should also be engaged in discussions about the transportation-related services at other campus-owned facilities and satellite campuses. Their primary objective is to recommend a sustainable funding model that a) ensures adequate support of programs, services and infrastructure to provide access to campus-owned facilities and b) aligns with campus goals related to sustainability and the limits imposed on campus by the Long Range Development Plan (LRDP). The committee meets monthly, mid-afternoon on the first Tuesday of the month via Zoom.

Students appointed to this committee will work with the head of TAPS (Transportation and Parking Services) to ensure that student interests are being brought before the Santa Cruz Metro Board.
