CDTC’s Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC), formerly known as the Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force, was born out of the 1997 New Visions plan. The BPAC continues to be very active, meeting regularly and dealing with issues ranging from public education to facility planning. The members provide technical guidance on Community and Transportation Linkage Program projects and other bicycle and pedestrian related projects throughout the region.
The organizations that are presently represented on the Task Force include: local municipalities, NYS Department of Transportation, NYS Department of Health, Guilderland Pathways Committee, Saratoga County Heritage Trails Committee, CDTA, Hudson River Valley Greenway, the New York Bicycling Coalition and the Mohawk Hudson Cycling Club among others. Other organizations or interested private citizens are encouraged to join the task force to raise their concerns regarding bicycling and walking in the Capital District.
The BPAC generally meets the second Tuesday of the month at the CDTC office. All meetings are open to the public.
