The San Mateo County Transit District Board of Directors is soliciting applicants for its Citizens Advisory Committees.

CAC member responsibilities include providing input to the board on current and potential transit needs. CAC members play a vital role in the development of transit and transportation related issues throughout San Mateo County.

The SamTrans CAC is comprised of 15 volunteer members, who represent a specific segment of the community.

This recruitment seeks to fill five member positions, which will serve until April 2009.
• Two Community representatives
• Two Bus Rider representatives
• One Multimodal representative

The CAC meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in San Carlos. Applicants will be interviewed by a board subcommittee, with the whole board approving the successful candidates.

Interested persons can download an application from the SamTrans Web site at www.samtrans.com or contact the board secretary at 650-508-6279. Application deadline is Friday, April 14, 2006 at 5:00 p.m.

The San Mateo County Transit District manages the fixed-route bus and Redi-Wheels paratransit services; administers Caltrain rail service which is governed by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board; operates a shuttle program; and is a partner in operating the BART-SFO extension.
