The Metropolitan Transportation Commission – the Bay Area's transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency – is recruiting Bay Area residents for its 27-member Policy Advisory Council.

The Policy Advisory Council is a public advisory committee created by the Commission to advise MTC on a range of topics including regional planning, housing, land use, greenhouse gas reduction, public transit improvements, and new revenues for transportation in the Bay Area. Advisors will jump into the thick of transportation, learn about the complexities of funding, and help analyze the connections between transportation, land use, air quality and climate change.

"Transportation policy and related issues affect everyone in the Bay Area and input from residents is key," said Commission Chair and Napa County Supervisor Alfredo Pedroza. "The Policy Advisory Council is critical in providing a range of views. Anyone interested in helping improve Bay Area mobility should apply."

Applications for the Policy Advisory Council will be accepted through Sunday, August 1, 2021. Applicants must be willing to serve a four-year term currently scheduled to begin in January 2022 and to end in December 2025. 

You can learn more about the Policy Advisory Council here, and apply for a vacant position by filling out this online application form. For more information, please contact or call 415.778.6706.
