SPATS Plans and Programs are voted on by committees. The overarching committee for SPATS is the SPATS Policy Committee. This committee is responsible for voting on all plans and programs. Before reaching the Policy Committee, plans and programs are evaluated by the Technical Committee. In addition to committees within SPATS, SPATS staff also serve on various boards and committees.
The SPATS Policy Committee is the decision making body of the Spartanburg Area Transportation Study and is primarily comprised of elected officials representing municipal, county and state governing bodies within the study area.
The SPATS Technical Committee is a staff committee responsible for the preparation of the Long-Range Transportation Plan, the Transportation Improvement Program, and the Unified Planning Work Program. The Technical Committee also examines and analyzes transportation alternatives within the SPATS urban area, and recommends projects to the SPATS Policy Committee for funding and construction.
