The Transbay Joint Powers Authority is seeking Bay Area residents to serve on the TJPA Citizens Advisory Committee to help shape the future of Salesforce Transit Center operations.

This is an opportunity for individuals to provide input on the operation of the Salesforce Transit Center and rooftop park, which is owned and operated by the TJPA, and to help shape the discussion on the development of the Downtown Rail Extension project now also known as The Portal.

The extension will connect Caltrain and ultimately, the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s statewide system to the Center in downtown San Francisco. Past CAC members have contributed to the successful planning, development and construction of the Center and rooftop park; the creation of the transit-oriented neighborhood surrounding the Center; and the economic vitality of the Center and its retail offerings. 

The TJPA seeks to appoint Committee members that represent the diversity of the Bay Area.  There are eight full-term seats available representing the following constituencies: 

  • Daily AC Transit Transbay Rider into San Francisco
  • Daily Caltrain Rider into San Francisco
  • Daily MUNI Rider on a line that terminates at or passes through the Transbay Terminal
  • Disabled Advocate
  • Member of the Citywide (San Francisco) Business Community
  • Member with Expertise in Real Estate Development or Real Estate Finance
  • Representative from Labor
  • San Francisco Based Public Transit Advocate

The TJPA CAC consists of 15 members representing specific constituencies, which represent the many local and regional groups that benefit the Transbay Program.  CAC full-terms are for a period of two-years and each member is eligible to serve a maximum of three consecutive terms.

Submit an application to the TJPA via e-mail at or by mail: 425 Mission St., Suite 250, San Francisco, 94105. Applications are available at and due by Feb. 17.
