Sacramento Regional Transit's (SacRT) Mobility Advisory Council (MAC) was formed in 2005 as a voluntary advisory body to replace its previous, longstanding Disabled and Elderly Committee for Accessible Transportation (DECAT). A goal of the Council is to encourage involvement from key members of agencies and organizations, as well as members of the general public, who are transit users and/or recognized for their advocacy and community service on behalf of the senior and disabled community.
The Council is comprised of up to 17 members, 9 representing organizations or agencies which provide services or advocate for persons with disabilities and seniors and 8 at-large members representing individuals with disabilities and seniors. The composition of representatives reflects a balance across various types of disabilities.
The object and purpose of the Mobility Advisory Council is to advise SacRT on system accessibility features and improvements, provide communication between SacRT and key stakeholder groups whose interests are representing persons with disabilities and seniors, and represent public transportation interest areas for persons with disabilities and seniors. The Council's annual work plan links accessibility issues with larger customer-oriented decisions, such as fare changes, customer information, and service plans.
SacRT's Board of Directors and staff greatly value the ability to consult with the Council on service issues affecting the disabled and senior community. The mission and purpose of the MAC, organized as an advisory council is to:
The Mobility Advisory Council meets monthly. All meetings are open to the public. Input is always accepted concerning accessible transit issues not on the meeting agenda.
