Regional Transportation Advisory Committee
The Regional Transportation Advisory Committee (RTAC) is a forum for transportation officials and elected officials from the Arrowhead Region to discuss regional transportation issues and set regional priorities. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission staffs the RTAC.

In addition to being a regional forum, the RTAC advises ARDC on its transportation planning projects and helps to prioritize applications to the RTAC In-Kind Transportation Planning Grant for funding.
