2023 CAC Recruitment

*** The TJPA is currently accepting applications for becoming a member of the TJPA’s Citizen Advisory Committee until February 17, 2023.  Please follow the instructions below to apply.***


The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) is soliciting applications from Bay Area residents to serve on the TJPA Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC).  This is an opportunity for individuals to provide input on the operation of the world-class Salesforce Transit Center (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, which will connect Caltrain and ultimately, the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s statewide system to the Center, the Grand Central Station of the West, 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:

  1. Daily AC Transit Transbay Rider into San Francisco
  2. Daily Caltrain Rider into San Francisco
  3. Daily MUNI Rider on a line that terminates at or passes through the Transbay Terminal
  4. Disabled Advocate
  5. Member of the Citywide (San Francisco) Business Community
  6. Member with Expertise in Real Estate Development or Real Estate Finance
  7. Representative from Labor
  8. 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. The TJPA CAC meets on the second Tuesday of the month from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and meetings are held at the TJPA office, 425 Mission Street, Suite 250, San Francisco, CA.  Consistent attendance is required.
