About the CAC

The TJPA’s Citizens Advisory Committee was created to advise the TJPA Board of Directors on matters of public interest relating to the Transbay Transit Center Project (TJPA CAC Bylaws). Representing the diversity of the Bay Area, members include the fifteen voting members appointed by the TJPA Board of Directors, plus one non-voting TJPA staff member liaison. Voting members are appointed for two-year terms, except seven members who served an initial one year term upon creation of the body.
