FACT SHEET

The Middlesex County Transportation Coordinating Committee (TCC) was established by the Board of Chosen Freeholders in 1976 in response to legislation governing the federally funded Subregional Transportation Planning Program which calls for direct participation of the general public, citizen groups, locally elected officials and transportation providers in the process of making transportation decisions. The TCC also serves as the official advisory body to the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders on transportation issues and especially on projects and programs that are federally funded.

Such programs include the ongoing federally funded Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) that is coordinated by the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) with the participation of the affected Counties and other subregions, the New Jersey Department of Transportation, New Jersey Transit and other regional transportation agencies. This program contains a wide range of transportation proposals including highway, bridge, intersection, transit improvements and other programs of both local and regional significance. The TCC also reviews and provides input to the periodic update of the County's Transportation Plan and other federally funded projects and studies. Meetings of the TCC provide a forum for public discussion of various transportation matters and issues of concern, and a means to advance these issues for appropriate action.

Membership of the TCC includes representation from the Board of Chosen Freeholders, the County's 25 municipalities, the County's State Legislative delegation and congressional representatives, transit providers, the education and business community, and other State, regional and County transportation agencies.

Meetings of the TCC are usually held on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Middlesex County Planning Board First Floor Meeting Center at 7:00 PM at 40 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, New Jersey. There are no meetings held in July, August, and December.
