Help us improve the RTA’s Fixed Route and Paratransit System!

December 13, 2019

The next Riders Advisory Council Meeting will be held on Thursday, May 21st at 6:00 PM VIRTUALLY using Zoom. Click Here for ZOOM Details.

The Regional Transportation Agency (RTA) has formed a Riders’ Advisory Council to create a forum and voice for riders including residents, workers, students, seniors, and persons with disabilities. The Council works directly with RTA management and representatives from Anne Arundel County, Howard County, Prince George’s County, and the City of Laurel.

• The Riders’ Advisory Council (RAC) is a committee that is established to receive input from riders on operational and accessibility issues that affect the quality of public transit service in the Regional Transportation Agency’s (RTA) transit service area and to provide this input to the RTA Commission1, to the RTA, and to the Parties2.

• The intent of the RAC is to provide a forum and voice for the RTA’s grassroots ridership, including residents, workers, students, seniors, and persons with disabilities.

• The Chair of the Riders’ Advisory Council is a non-voting member of the RTA Commission. The RAC provides a report at each Commission meeting concerning rider recommendations.

• The RTA RAC is currently accepting applications for membership. Applications can be found here and can be submitted to the RAC Staff Coordinator, Cole McCarren at cole.mccarren@transitrta.com

If you need special assistance to attend the meeting, please call Customer Service at 800-270-9553.
