Transportation Authority Seeks Community Volunteers

 

The San Mateo County Transportation Authority is seeking five volunteers for its Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC).

A 15-member volunteer group, the CAC acts in an advisory capacity to the Transportation Authority’s Board of Directors, providing valuable input on the funds collected by Measure A and the projects and programs in the Transportation Expenditure Plan.

Measure A is the ½-cent sales tax that San Mateo County voters approved for the use of transportation and infrastructure improvement projects. The Expenditure Plan includes Caltrain improvements, highway and street projects, paratransit service for people with disabilities, pedestrian and bike upgrades and other infrastructure projects in San Mateo County.

The committee meets the Tuesday before the first Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. in San Carlos. Members of the CAC must be residents of San Mateo County.

Interested persons can download an application here or call 650-508-6223 for more information.

The deadline for submitting the application is April 3.
