4 Report Organization This synthesis report begins with a review of relevant fed- eral guidelines and requirements for public involvement that guide transit agencies and MPOs that conduct transit plan- ning. A review of literature about advisory committees, as they relate to transit planning and transportation planning more broadly, also is included. This is followed by the results of the agency and MPO survey and case studies detailing the involvement of advisory committees at five agencies and MPOs. The report concludes with an identification of suc- cessful practices and suggestions for further study. FIGURE 1 Responses received by region.
