The Working Group fulfills the DOT|TRCC’s secretariat function and coordinates all activities. It is made up of one representative from each of the Operating Administrations.
The Full Committee meets quarterly to share information and foster links between modes at a programmatic level. Membership in the Full Committee is open to DOT staff from any of the four Operating Administrations and OST as determined by the modal EC representative.
