VIA Transit Community Council - VIA Metropolitan Transit

VIA Transit Community Council

VIA’s commitment to strengthen lines of communication between the community it serves and its Board of Trustees took a step forward with the creation of the VIA Transit Community Council (VTCC) in 2017. Members of the VTCC, established by the VIA Board, will serve as transit ambassadors and liaisons to provide community feedback on a variety of topics, including planning, potential growth, and community outreach. VTCC members represent frequent riders, civic organizations, the business community, neighborhoods and suburban cities, armed forces, centers in education, and the hospitality and tourism industry.
