Sacramento Regional Transit Mobility Advisory Council

April 5, 2022 General

SacRT Mobility Advisory Council (MAC) is recruiting for new members, both in the organizational and at-large categories. MAC is seeking balance across various types of disabilities, as well as the region’s geographic areas and ethnic diversity.

The MAC was formed in 2005 as a voluntary advisory body to replace its previous, longstanding Disabled and Elderly Committee for Accessible Transportation (DECAT). The object and purpose of the MAC 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 older adults, and represent public transportation interest areas for persons with disabilities and older adults. MAC’s enclosed annual work plan links accessibility issues with larger customer-oriented decisions, such as fare changes, customer information, and service plans.

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.

SacRT’s Board of Directors and staff greatly value the ability to consult with the MAC on service issues affecting the disability and elderly community.  The MAC provides SacRT with the consumer’s perspective on many of SacRT’s system improvements, such as:

  • Facilities (including stop and station design/access)
  • Vehicle design
  • Major system expansion/capital plans, specific plans, and projects
  • Service plans and/or changes in advance of any significant service change proposals
  • Fixed route and paratransit service provision, including training communication and policy matters
  • Provide opportunities for public input on local transportation and needs for seniors and persons with disabilities
  • Organizational initiatives and transit ballot measures.

Please contact Priscilla Vargas, Acting ADA Compliance Officer at (279) 234-8391 or by email at pvargas@sacrt.com with any questions, your recommendations for potential members, or if you would be interested in a presentation about MAC at your organization. You may also contact Chris Hoang, SacRT Administrative Technician at (916) 556-0196 or choang@sacrt.com.

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.


MAC meetings are typically held the first Thursday of every month, at 2:30 p.m. in the Regional Transit Auditorium at 1400 29th Street, Sacramento.
