CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE | HOME

ROLE OF THE CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The Transportation Authority has appointed a Citizens Advisory Committee, or CAC, consisting of 11 members of the public who represent a broad spectrum of transportation and community concerns. The committee’s mission is to assist the Transportation Authority by reflecting community values in the development of transportation programs and communicating information about the Transportation Authority's mission and programs back to the community.

The committee  provides Transportation Authority Commissioners and staff with input on nearly all matters that go before the agency’s Board and its standing committees. This includes providing comments on transportation plans, programs and studies; the Prop K (half-cent sales tax) and Prop AA ($10 vehicle registration fee) Strategic Plans; funding priorities; transportation-related legislation; and community transportation concerns. The Citizens Advisory Committee also assists in publicizing transportation projects and plans to neighborhoods, and solicits community input for feedback.

MEETINGS

The Transportation Authority holds Citizens Advisory Committee meetings from 6-8:00 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month, with a few exceptions, at 1455 Market Street (between 10th and 11th Streets), 22nd Floor. Agendas, minutes and supporting materials are available at www.sfcta.org/agendas.

Members of the public may attend Citizens Advisory Committee meetings to hear project updates and provide commentary and feedback during public comment.
