The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) is soliciting applications from Bay Area residents to serve on the TJPA Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) to help shape the discussion in the development of Phase 2 of the Transbay Program and provide input in the operation of the Salesforce Transit Center and rooftop park. The Phase 2 project includes the Downtown Rail Extension (DTX), which will connect Caltrain’s commuter rail service and the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s statewide system to downtown San Francisco. Past CAC members have contributed to the successful planning, development and construction of Phase 1 of the Transbay Program, which includes the Salesforce Transit Center and the Salesforce rooftop park.

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

1. Daily Caltrain Rider into San Francisco
2. Daily AC Transit Rider into San Francisco
3. Daily MUNI Rider on a line that serves the Transit Center
4. Member of the Citywide (SF) business community
5. Disabled Advocate
6. San Francisco based Transit Advocate
7. Regional Transit Advocate

The TJPA CAC consists of 15 members representing specific constituencies, which represent the many local and regional groups impacted by 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. The TJPA CAC meets on the second Tuesday of the month from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. Due to the Stay Safer at Home order, meetings are currently held remotely. Meetings are normally held at the TJPA office at 425 Mission Street, Suite 250, San Francisco, CA. Consistent attendance is required.
