Charge

The California State University Fullerton Alternative Transportation Committee (ATC) advises Parking and Transportation Services regarding the development of CSUF’s transportation programs and facilities. The ATC is expected to support CSUF as a leader in sustainable mobility and will review and advise on transportation proposals that improve air quality, equity of campus access, thoughtful use of land, and fiduciary obligations.

The ATC shall be responsible for analyzing and evaluating the campus' existing transportation programs and challenges and recommending plans and strategies to increase equitable access and cost-effective transportation options. The ATC is comprised of students, staff, faculty, and subject matter experts to attend meetings, review recommendations, and convey feedback appropriately.
