Mission Statement

The mission of the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is to serve RTA's Board of Trustees, management, staff, users and general public in a pro-active role as the pulse of the community in the promotion and provision of high-quality transportation programs and services.


  • Make recommendations to the Board of Trustees on fare changes, Long-Range Plan updates, and major or new projects.
  • Provide comments on service changes.
  • Review, monitor and recommend service and program improvements or expansion projects to RTA.
  • Strengthen relations within the transit communities through the development and implementation of public relations campaigns, programs and events.

Focus areas

  • Ease of Use. Make RTA easier to use for all riders. Participate in implementation of projects for improved transit waiting environments.
  • Safety and Security. Ensure that RTA is a safe and secure system.
  • Advocacy and Partnerships. Advocate and partner with organizations to increase transit funding and promote public transit use.
