In 2015, Winter Park Resort and the Town of Winter Park agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) that created a pathway to transition the pre-existing private transit service to a new, publicly-owned transit service. For transparency and accountability, the MOU created a Transit Advisory Committee (the “TAC”) that would act in an advisory capacity to the Winter Park Town Council to develop the annual transit budget, coordinate the transition of the service, and make recommendations on levels of service. The TAC was originally comprised of three representatives – two representatives from Winter Park Resort and one representative from the Town of Winter Park. Upon approval of a long-term, sustainable funding source by Fraser and Winter Park voters in November of 2015, one representative from Winter Park Resort was replaced by a representative from the Town of Fraser.
The current Transit Advisory Committee members are:
Laurie Mason (Winter Park Resort)
Chuck Banks (Town of Winter Park)
Philip Vandernail (Town of Fraser)
TAC meetings are held at 4:00 p.m. at Winter Park Town Hall on the first and third Monday of every month, and the TAC meetings are open to the public. Please click here for TAC meeting agendas. If you have a matter that you would like to have placed on a TAC meeting agenda, please contact the Transit Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-726-8081x210.
