The Riders’ Advisory Council is the forum for RTA riders, including residents, workers, students, seniors, and persons with disabilities, to engage directly with RTA management and agency partners in 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.
