AC Transit Accessibility Advisory Committee vacancies
Submitted By AC Transit
To ensure its transit services are used and easily obtainable by all members of the public, AC Transit seeks volunteers to fill vacancies on its Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC). The District invites applications from people interested in volunteering their input by serving on the committee as advocates for seniors and disabled bus riders.
The AAC consists of 14 members and, typically, meets on the second Tuesday of the month to address concerns about, implement and enhance AC Transit's programs and services for seniors and people with disabilities. The committee was established specifically to review policies and procedures and to comment and advise the District and its seven-member Board of Directors on all matters related to bus accessibility.
Citizens appointed to serve on the committee will serve a term of one year beginning March 1, 2012. In an effort to maintain a diversified panel, representative of people who are seniors, people with varying disabilities and of diverse ethnic backgrounds, two committee members will be appointed by each Director.
Qualified applicants must use AC Transit's fixed-route service, be a senior or individual with a disability and/or represent such groups and be willing to devote the necessary time to attend meetings. Along with identifying problems and offering probable solutions and ideas, prospective applicants should also have respect for others, be open to hearing divergent points of view and commit up to six hours per month to committee-related work.
Applications can be obtained from, and returned to, the District Secretary's Office, 1600 Franklin Street, 10th Floor, Oakland, CA 94612 or by calling (510) 891-7201. Completed applications also can be faxed to (510) 891- 4705.
The deadline for all applications, to be received by the District Secretary, is February 3, 2012.
