Citizen Advisory Committee Positions Open

Are you interested in having an impact on public transportation in our community? We want you! Our Authority has four open positions on their Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). One is a new YOUTH position (1-year term) for ages 15-19 and the others will fill current vacancies (3-year term).  Applications are due Friday, May 20.

Here’s some information on the CAC: The CAC is a 20-member advisory group that provides input to the Authority on local public transportation issues such as: Dial-A-Lift policies, service changes, strategic plans, the budget, fare structures, transit amenities and other issues. They meet the 3rd Monday of every month at Intercity Transit’s Business Office at 526 Pattison Street SE, Olympia, WA. The meetings are open to the public and include a forum for citizen comment. 

Citizen Advisory Committee members are selected to achieve diversity and geographical representation in the Public Transportation Benefit Area. The group includes senior citizens, youth, people with disabilities, college students, business owners, social service agency representatives, neighborhood associations, the medical community, environmentalists and bicyclists.
