Social Services Transportation Advisory Council

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.

SSTAC meetings quarterly at 3 p.m. on the first Tuesday of a month via Zoom due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. These meetings are open to the public and there is an opportunity on every agenda for the public to offer comments.

Meeting agendas can be found in our agenda center. Prior year's agendas can be viewed in our archive center. Interested parties may subscribe to email notifications to receive updates regarding posted agendas or meeting cancellations.
