Citizens' Advisory Council (CAC)

The Citizens' Advisory Council is a 15-member advisory body to the SFMTA. The Council meets once a month on the first Thursday of the month where they hear presentations from SFMTA staff with respect to any matter within the jurisdiction of the Agency and provide recommendations on those matters to the Agency. Each member is appointed either by the Mayor or the Board of Supervisors.

Currently, meetings of the Council are held the first Thursday of every month at 5:30pm via Microsoft Teams. At least 72 hours before a meeting, all materials for the upcoming meeting are available online and at the front desk of the SFMTA Offices, located on the 7th floor of One South Van Ness.
