Why volunteer to serve on the PAC?

Transportation plays an essential role in your community. It connects you to the places you need to go and the people you need to see. The transportation system gives you access to key places and opportunities.

The Public Advisory Committee (PAC) provides independent, region-oriented advice regarding regional transportation planning topics to the BRTB. Your knowledge of your community's transportation needs can be a valuable addition to the planning process by identifying concerns and ideas for addressing problems.

Representatives of organizations (community, business, or non-profit) in the Baltimore region are encouraged to apply. Individuals may also apply. Volunteers from Anne Arundel, Carroll, Harford, Howard, and Queen Anne's Counties are particularly needed.
