VIA SEEKS DISABILITY COMMUNITY ADVISORS TO SERVE ON COMMITTEE
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 reports to the VIA Board of Trustees.
Currently there are six (6) positions for ATAC Community Liaisons. Each position will represent one of the following groups:
