Get Involved

The BTA is at work across Oregon, in classrooms, on the streets, and advocating for a safe, accessible mix of transportation in our state.

Have an Impact: Join a Bicycle Advisory Committee

bac-willvanlue1 copy

Bicycle Advisory Committees (BACs) are committees created by municipalities to advise either the mayor, staff or council on the state of bicycling in the community. The committees vary in size but are generally comprised of interested citizens invested in making their community a better place to ride bicycles. BACs often have a lot of freedom to define their role. Many times they review projects and policies. Some, like the Beaverton BAC, have created an action plan to help guide their work for many years to come.

Bicycle Advisory Committees are active in Portland, Multnomah County, Clackamas County, Tigard, Beaverton, and many other communities across Oregon.

Who should be involved?
You! Are you interested in bicycles? Does your community have a BAC? Check your community’s website to find meeting times and minutes and learn how to get involved. Many BACs ask members for a 2 hour commitment once a month. Don’t have a BAC? Ask your council or mayor to start a BAC.
