 Apply to Serve on the Community Advisory Committee

The CAC provides GCRTA with feedback on transportation projects and communicates about these projects to the community. CAC members are appointed by the GCRTA Board of Trustees to serve a two-year term.

The CAC includes representatives from various segments of the community, such as public policy organizations, labor, businesses, seniors, people with disabilities, environmentalists, and neighborhoods, and reflects broad transportation interests. The CAC is also intended to reflect the racial and gender diversity of Cuyahoga County residents.
