Palo Alto City Councilmember Gail Price has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2014 Transportation Infrastructure & Services Steering Committee. 

Her role will include shaping NLC's policy positions on all forms of transit, from roads and rails to aviation and ports.

The position will take her to Washington, D.C, where she’ll advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress and with the Administration

"I look forward to working on critical policy issues involving all aspects of transportation," said Price.  “Improving critical infrastructure and services is key to the current and future economic vitality and livability of all of our communities.”

Price was also recently appointed to the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, (VTA), that provides bus, light rail, and paratransit services, as well as participates as a funding partner in regional rail service including Caltrain, Capital Corridor, and the Altamont Corridor Express. VTA is responsible for countywide transportation planning, including congestion management, design and construction of specific highway, pedestrian, and bicycle improvement projects, as well as promotion of transit oriented development.
