Effective Transportation Advisory Committees: Creating a Group that Reflects all Community Voices

Advisory committees present transit agencies with the opportunity to engage directly customers who use their services on a daily basis, citizen advocates and business owners. By involving the public and bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders, advisory committees can help transit agencies develop successful initiatives, resolve problems and create an ongoing dialogue that serves everyone in the community. Easter Seals Project ACTION (Accessible Community Transportation in Our Nation) hopes that this guidebook will serve as a helpful resource to both transit agencies that are considering creating an advisory committee for the first time and agencies that are looking to help their current advisory committee increase its effectiveness. Although this guidebook may be useful to many types of advisory committees, it focuses on groups devoted to increasing accessible transportation.
