Want to give SEPTA a piece of your mind?

Here are two opportunities to weigh in with SEPTA and transit, generally.

First, SEPTA is looking for applicants for its Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC).

When the Pennsylvania Legislature created the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) they also called for the establishment of a Committee, made up of transit riders, who would advise SEPTA on issues important to customers.

Known as the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC), this group is made up of transit riders representing Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties….

If you live in one of the above counties, are a regular SEPTA rider, feel strongly about transit, and are interested in representing other riders, and have a proven track record of community volunteerism, please take a few moments to complete this application.

The applications are due by March 30 and are available here.

Second, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission is looking for applicants for its Public Participation Task Force.

The Task Force is a group comprised of representatives selected from the general public, community and civic organizations, advocacy groups, professional associations, and the private sector. Twelve members of the Task Force will be chosen through an application/interview process. Applicants must reside within DVRPC’s nine-county planning area. An interest in planning, as well as knowledge of regional issues, civic engagement, diversity of experience, and effective communication skills are also beneficial for membership.

The applications are due by March 1 and are available here.
