    • Recommending mechanisms and methodologies for obtaining public opinion on specific transportation issues
    • Serving as a liaison between the public and OCTA
    • Commenting on significant transportation issues and suggesting possible solutions

    Selected by the OCTA Board of Directors, the CAC is comprised of 34 members that reflect a broad spectrum of interests and all geographic areas of the county. The diverse members’ backgrounds range from community leadership to transportation research and engineering. Selection criteria for the CAC include demonstrated interest and involvement with community activities and transportation issues as well as a willingness to dedicate a minimum of 15 hours per year to OCTA meetings and activities.
