Riders' Advisory Council Application
Call for applications for vacancies on Metro's Riders' Advisory Council.
Metro's Board of Directors wants to hear from people like you.
Metro’s riders have a lot of good ideas about Metro and a unique perspective on Metro’s service. The Riders’ Advisory Council offers Metro customers the opportunity to work with Metro’s Board of Directors and Metro staff to represent customers’ voices in decision-making and help set policies that will improve Metro’s service and customers’ experiences.
Metro is currently soliciting applications from customers interested in filling vacancies on the Riders’ Advisory Council.
Do you qualify?
We encourage you to apply for membership if you:
1. Ride Metrobus, Metrorail or MetroAccess;
2. Are not employed by Metro or a Metro contractor;
3. Are not an elected official; and
4. Live within the Metro service area.
What you give. What you get.
If selected, you’ll advise Metro’s Board of Directors and offer input to Metro staff on how to improve Metro’s service. You won’t be paid, but you will have the opportunity to use your expertise to make a difference in the ways Metro serves the region.
Members are required to attend the RAC’s monthly meeting each month. Meetings currently take place online and are expected to include an in-person option (at Metro’s L’Enfant Plaza Headquarters) beginning in Summer 2022. Members are also encouraged to solicit input from other riders and to meet with their appointing Board members to share their feedback.

How members are selected.
Metro’s Board of Directors will appoint candidates that represent a diverse cross section of customers and reflect a broad representation of people from different geographical locations in the Metro service area.
With a limited number of vacancies on the Council, unfortunately not every applicant can be accepted. If you are not selected to fill a position on the Council, you’re still welcome to attend and participate in meetings; your application will be kept on file for one year and reviewed when vacancies arise for which you’re eligible.
