Shape Transit Future
Join Niagara Transit Commission's Public Advisory Committee
The Niagara Transit Commission is excited to announce the formation of its Public Advisory Committee, a dedicated group of volunteers who will play a crucial role in shaping the future of transit in the Niagara Region. With a focus on providing an affordable, accessible, reliable, safe, and convenient transit system that meets customers' expectations, this committee will serve as the voice of the community.
What is the Public Advisory Committee?
The Niagara Transit Commission Public Advisory Committee is a volunteer advisory body designed to support the Commission in its mission to enhance public transit services across the Niagara Region. This committee will provide valuable perspectives and input to the Commission on various transit-related matters, including service levels, policies, programs, awareness campaigns, and legislative initiatives. Furthermore, it will address the issues and concerns of public transit users, ensuring that the system remains responsive to the community's needs.
The Niagara Transit Commission is actively seeking dedicated individuals to fill several important positions within the Public Advisory Committee. These positions include:
- One resident from each city/town nominated by that city/town from the submitted applications. These representatives should be reflective of the diversity of transit users and transit-interested parties within their respective communities.
- Two members from various community groups within Niagara represent persons with disabilities or other accessibility-focused organizations.
- Two post-secondary representatives, with one member from Brock University and one from Niagara College.
- One member representing the Chambers of Commerce.
- One member representing the senior sector.
- One member representing the youth sector.
The Commission strongly encourages applications from all members of the community, including Indigenous peoples, people of colour, individuals of all genders and sexualities, and people with disabilities. Diverse representation is crucial to ensuring that the committee accurately reflects the region's transit user base.
