Regional Transit's (RT) Mobility Advisory Council 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 21 members, 15 representing organizations or agencies which provide services or advocate for persons with disabilities and older adults and 6 at-large members representing individuals with disabilities and older adults.  The composition of representatives reflects a balance across various types of disabilities. 

The object and purpose of the Mobility Advisory Council is to advise RT on system accessibility features and improvements, provide communication between RT 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. The Council's annual work plan links accessibility issues with larger customer-oriented decisions, such as fare changes, customer information, and service plans.

RTís Board of Directors and staff greatly value the ability to consult with the Council on service issues affecting the disabled and elderly community.  The Council provides RT with the consumerís perspective on many of RTís system improvements, such as:

  • RT facilities (including stop and station design/access)
     

  • RT vehicle design
     

  • Updates of transit, paratransit and metropolitan transportation plans
     

  • Fixed-route and paratransit service provision, including training,
    communication and policy matters
     

  • Organizational initiatives and transit ballot measures.

The Mobility Advisory Council meets monthly, with standing committees that meet every other month.  All meetings are open to the public.  Input is always accepted concerning accessible transit issues not on the meeting agenda.  As well as helping RT maintain a fully accessible public transit system in the greater Sacramento area, it is an objective of MAC to educate the members of our community to their rights under the ADA for equal access to public transportation.
