General Information

Intercity Transit's Community Advisory Committee 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. 

The Community Advisory Committee meets the 3rd Monday of every month at Intercity Transit's Business Office. The meetings are open to the public and include a forum for citizen comment. 

View the meeting calendar and packets.

Nineteen of the Community Advisory Committee members serve three-year terms and the youth position serves a one-year term. 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.

At least one member of the Intercity Transit Authority attends each Community Advisory Committee meeting. 

On January 3, 2018, based on a recommendation from the committee, the Intercity Transit Authority adopted a name change for the Citizen Advisory Committee to the Community Advisory Committee. The committee believes that the new name is more inclusive and reflective of our major funding sources, which are paid not just by citizens and residents.
