Sustainability Standing Committee
The inter-related issues of climate change and energy may be the biggest challenges facing the transportation profession over the coming decades. There are also numerous other pressures and trends in society and funding that create further challenges for transportation. As a cross-council effort, the Sustainability Standing Committee is promoting both the development and communication of solutions to these challenges.

Professional Transportation Planner™ (PTP) certification program
The Transportation Planning Council is happy to announce that the Professional Transportation Planner™ (PTP) certification program is part of the Council’s efforts to provide members with what is current in the field of transportation planning.
The certification program is designed for candidates who have a wide-range of education and experience in transportation planning. Currently, no other certification program is offered that specifically addresses the work performed by transportation planners. Transportation planning is the discipline that examines and evaluates the potential of future actions to improve movement of people and goods by motor vehicle, public transportation, walking and cycling in accordance with a set of objectives.
Providing cooperative interaction between the public, transportation professionals and decision makers—transportation planning balances the needs of access mobility and safety with environmental economic and social equity concerns. For more information on the PTP certification, click here.
