TAG’s Mission is to improve Regional Mobility by advocating for transportation infrastructure.
In the next 10 years’ time, with the rise of automated transportation and the expected boom of the Houston Region, the area will require a diverse portfolio of mobility solutions. It is the objective of the Transportation Advocacy Group to communicate, fund, and guide projects to ensure that the region’s infrastructure scales accordingly.
Bring industry leaders, concerned citizens, and other active parties together to sit at the same table, work under the same roof, and strive for the same goals, assuring that the message for which TAG advocates is representative.
Establish TAG as a uni ed operating authority and voice to direct all methods of regional transportation, thereby reducing congestion and increasing efficiency.
Ensure long and short-term funding needs are met for sustained mobility in the Houston Region.
Oversee the planning and creation of the Houston Region’s 21st Century State of Mobility.
• Preserving Quality of Life
At the core of everything TAG advocates, promotes, and endorses, is a commitment to Preserving Quality of Life. This value encompasses every party a ected by living, working, and interacting with the Houston Region’s transportation infrastructure. By producing tangible results with respect to congestion, e ciency, and adaptability, TAG helps not only an industry, but an entire community.
• Transportation Leadership
Transportation Leadership, to TAG, represents an ideal state of development in which vision, communication, and authority are vested in a centralized, governing body that can properly facilitate communication between all relevant parties.
• Enabling the State of Mobility
Enabling the State of Mobility, for TAG, means assuming a leadership position for Houston Region transportation projects and petitions to certify that they are consciously vetted and undertaken. Ensuring that proposals are considered, weighed, and measured will make for the strongest solutions and recommendations.
• Building for the Future
As the challenges that come from a booming metropolitan area arise, TAG is committed to Building for the Future, addressing current areas of concern while remaining forward-thinking to ensure that the scope and magnitude of current areas of need never overtake the vision for the Houston Region.
• Leading Improvement
Projects that demand private and public sector cooperation require an organization that can bridge the divide between the two and speak with a united voice. Leading improvement is a core value of TAG, as it looks forward to working with all interested parties for future projects.
• Preserving Professional Diversity
The leadership members of TAG represent vast swaths of professional and personal backgrounds, and together ensure that TAG is able to convey a united, diverse message. Moving forward, TAG wants to preserve that defining characteristic, and allow it to continue to inform decision-making.
