Committee Mission

The Mission of the Transportation Needs of the National Parks and Public Lands Committee is to provide a national forum for transportation issues related to the conservation of the scenery, the cultural and natural resources and to the quality of the visitor experience in national parks and public lands. The Committee advances research into these issues and disseminates the results throughout the world. Through proactively identifying and defining preservation and interpretation issues, the Committee will become a recognized leader for the transportation community.
