Are you a transit user? Do you want to represent your town and advise the Metropolitan Transit Commission (MTC), the governing body of Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) on future transit decisions that impact you and other transit users locally?
The Town of Huntersville is currently seeking applicants for the Town's representative on the Citizen Transit Advisory Group. Click HERE for Application.
Those interested should apply by December 10th as the board is scheduled to make appointments at its December 15th board meeting.
The Citizens Transit Advisory Group is an advisory committee that reviews the long-range transit system planning and proposed operating and capital programs from the community's perspective, and makes recommendations to the MTC. While it is not a policy-making body, its recommendations to the MTC fulfill the requirement levied by the Interlocal Agreement that the MTC ensures public involvement in transit planning. The CTAG is made up of members of the community appointed by the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners, the Charlotte City Council, each of the six Towns in Mecklenburg County, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education. Members may not be an elected official and members serve staggered two-year terms.
CTAG meetings usually occur the third Tuesday of every month from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center (CMGC), 600 E. 4th Street, in room CH-14. These meetings are open to the public.
