Shout out to Transit Riders Advisory Committee

Dear Readers:

A quick shout out from The Bus Blog to the Transit Riders Advisory Committee, made up of 13 especially dedicated DART riders. Every other month the TRAC members come together for a meeting with DART staff. They listen to presentations, give feedback, and make suggestions for improving DART.

They act as representatives of the ridership at large, not only from local and express routes and paratransit in Greater Des Moines, but also from the wider central Iowa region covered by DART’s RideShare program. They do a top-notch job of looking our for the interests of all riders. Today was the latest meeting, and it was abundantly clear that they care deeply about improving public transit service in Greater Des Moines and beyond.

Many thanks and a job well done, TRAC members.
