Transportation Advisory Group (TAG)

The Transportation Advisory Group (TAG) is a committee of transportation providers, human service agencies, state and local government agencies, health care providers, and other interested stakeholders that work to coordinate human service transportation in central Iowa.  The Transportation Advisory Group was developed and is staffed by the Des Moines Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and has been in existence since 2006.

The TAG meets every other month, with Catlin Curry and Allison van Pelt serving as co-chairs.

If you have questions about the group, or would like copies of past agendas or minutes, please contact Allison van Pelt.
