MCAG seeking applications for committee appointment

Merced County Association of Governments (MCAG) is seeking applicants for appointment to the Social Services Transportation Advisory Council (SSTAC). The SSTAC is a nine-member council appointed by the MCAG Governing Board to solicit the input of persons who rely on public transit because of youth, advanced age, or mental or physical impairment.

The SSTAC is convened annually, at minimum, to conduct public hearings to identify any “unmet transit needs” that are “reasonable to meet” that may exist in Merced County, as required by the Transportation Development Act. The SSTAC also offers input to the MCAG Governing Board on transit service issues.

SSTAC members are appointed to serve a three-year term. The council is comprised of social service and transit providers representing the elderly, the disabled, and persons of limited means while striving for geographic and minority representation. Currently, MCAG is seeking candidates for appointment to the council in the following category:

• Local Social Service Transportation Provider for the Disabled

Applications for the SSTAC can be obtained at or at MCAG, 369 W. 18th Street, Merced. For more information, please contact Natalia Austin at (209) 723-3153 x 127 or [email protected]

MCAG is the regional transportation planning agency and metropolitan planning organization for Merced County. In addition to regional transportation planning, MCAG also manages The Bus, YARTS, the Merced County Regional Waste Management Authority and administers Measure V funds. For more information, visit
