About the Committee:
The Accessibility Advisory Committee was established by the Board of Directors in 1991 to review, comment and advise the Board of Directors and District staff regarding the implementation and enhancement of planning programs and services for seniors and people with disabilities. The AAC consists of 14 members with two members being appointed by each of the seven elected members of the District’s Board of Directors. Committee members serve a one year term.
Any individual that utilizes AC Transit’s fixed-route service, is a senior or an individual with a disability and/or represents such groups, and is willing to devote the necessary hours to attend meetings of the Committee shall be eligible for appointment. The Board of Directors encourages that membership on the Committee be ethnically diverse and cover all geographical areas of the District’s service area as well as representation by/for seniors and individuals with varying types of disabilities.
