WestCAT hosted the first meeting of its Community Advisory Meeting on the evening of Thursday, September 15th. Many thanks to those who joined in the conversation!

Our conversations revolved around upcoming schedule changes, improving transfer connections between the J and local routes at the Transit Center, and how we can improve public communication around how to use Dial-a-Ride. We’ll work with 511 to look at ways to better inform riders about buses that are forced to redirect in response to traffic accidents. We also planned to start a series of Dial-a-Ride sign-up days at senior centers and senior housing buildings in the area.

Our next quarterly Community Advisory Committee meeting will be held this winter. If you’d be interested in joining, we’d love to have you! E-mail Julia Schnell for more information.
