GATRA Consumer Advisory Committee (GCAC)

Instituted in 1991, the GATRAConsumer Advisory Committee (GCAC) is made up of individuals who provide an open forum for general consumer and ADA related issues concerning GATRA’s fixed-route and paratransit services.

The GCAC meets quarterly, with specialized monthly subcommittee meetings.

The GCAC has a mailing list of about 200 people and organizations, with regular attendance from Councils on Aging, human service agencies and consumers of GATRA’s fixed-route and demand response services.
