The Social Service Transportation Advisory Council (SSTAC), created by Senate Bill (SB) 498 to meet requirements in state law, advises the Board on transit related issues for traditionally under-represented and underserved populations such as the elderly, disabled, low-income, and minority (i.e. Black, Hispanic, Asian American, Native American/ Alaskan Native, and Pacific Islander) community groups. It annually participates in the identification of transit needs in the region via the Unmet Transit Needs process and makes recommendations to the Board in their annual unmet transit needs determination and finding.
The SSTAC meets jointly with the ITC on a monthly basis. SSTAC meetings are held on the 1st Monday of every month at 3:00 p.m. The meetings are open to the public.
Membership of this committee is comprised of representatives from member jurisdictions and residents of San Joaquin County who are seniors, social service providers, transit users, and disabled. Members of SSTAC are appointed by the SJCOG Board. Members include:
City of Escalon
