VIA is seeking bus and van riders, and those who work with organizations supporting the disability community, to serve on the VIA Accessible Transit Advisory Committee (ATAC). The ATAC was created by the VIA Board of Trustees to study and review issues concerning the accessibility of VIA programs and services.
The ATAC, which includes five VIA trustees and seven community Liaisons, meets three to four times a year, where staff and Liaison members participate in discussions and respond to questions from VIA trustees.
Community Liaisons are comprised of members who serve in religious or educational activities, neighborhood associations and civic, volunteer or advocacy groups. Three of the Community Liaison positions are designated for transit riders.
Currently, there are four vacant Community Liaisons seats. To learn more and apply to serve on the VIA Accessible Transit Advisory Committee, visit VIAinfo.net/ATAC.
