Citizens Advisory Committee

The TJPA’s Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) was created to advise the TJPA Board of Directors on matters of public interest relating to the Transbay Program. Representing the diversity of the Bay Area, the CAC includes fifteen voting members appointed by the TJPA Board of Directors, plus one non-voting TJPA staff member liaison. Voting members are appointed for two-year terms, except seven members who served an initial one year term upon creation of the body. Each member is eligible to serve a maximum of three consecutive terms.

As of the February 22, 2022, CAC meeting archives are available here on which includes a recording of each meeting. Please note that there is no sign-up or log-in required, and viewers may wish to download recordings for full functionality.
