Represent AC Transit on Citizens Advisory Committee
Submitted By Clarence Johnson
Have some ideas about how to improve public transit, especially bus service? AC Transit is looking for you. Let your voice be heard by joining the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) to make recommendations to the Alameda County Transportation Commission (CTC).
The CAC serves as a liaison between the Alameda CTC and local communities and businesses in Alameda County. There is currently one vacancy on this committee representing AC Transit in discussing local transportation needs and issues.
The AC Transit Board of Directors will appoint a candidate to the two-year term. To be eligible for appointment, the applicant must be an Alameda County resident and be able to attend committee meetings that are typically held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month at various locations throughout Alameda County.
Additionally, four times a year the CAC hosts a transportation forum from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., directly following the CAC meeting. All meetings are open to the public.
AC Transit seeks applicants who are regular users of its bus service and reside within its Alameda County service area which includes the cities of Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland, Alameda, San Leandro, Hayward, Fremont, Piedmont, Newark and the unincorporated areas of Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Cherryland, Ashland and Fairview.
Applications must be submitted by Friday, June 29, 2012. Applicants must provide information on which lines they ride and how often they utilize AC Transit's bus service (daily, weekly, etc.).
If interested, contact AC Transit District Secretary Linda Nemeroff at (510) 891-7201 for an application, then return the completed form to her at 1600 Franklin Street, Oakland, CA 94612 or by email to LNemeroff@actransit.org. This appointment is subject to approval by the Alameda CTC.
