The Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) was established in 2001 to give a voice to the riders and potential riders of the community's public transit system. The Committee is comprised of individuals representing each of the fixed routes and by representatives from some of the community's service agencies who have an interest in transportation for their clients.
But you don't have to join the CAC to be part of their mission. Each month, the CAC includes a dedicated place on their monthly meeting agenda for Public Comment. Residents are encouraged to document their transit experience - positive or negative - and request time to pose their question during a regularly scheduled meeting. The CAC will review and discuss the situation and, if appropriate, make a recommendation to the Transit Authority Board of Directors and Transit Manager.
The CAC meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every other month at the Mountain Line offices in Westover from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. If you are interested in attending an upcoming CAC meeting, or would like to receive an application for a committee appointment, please contact the Mountain Line office at 291-RIDE or www.busride.org.
The Coopers Rock Foundation (CRF) was established as a nonprofit tax-exempt corporation in May of 1989 to receive contributions on behalf of the forest and provide financial assistance for state-approved projects not funded by the state. CRF members are people who care about the future of Coopers Rock State Forest. CRF is actively involved in promoting and sustaining recreational use and preservation of the forest.
