Introduction

Advisory committees play a vital role in shaping transportation, housing, and quality-of-life policies and programs in the region. SBCAG relies on the expertise and input from diverse professional and personal backgrounds of committee members to inform decision-making of the Board of Directors. The committees consist of local city, county, and transit agency staff, as well as volunteer residents. Through collaboration, committee members offer recommendations and guidance on regional priorities.

The following committees serve as advisory to the SBCAG Board of Directors

Committee members review unmet transit needs annually and make recommendations. The committee also assesses whether unmet transit needs are reasonable or unreasonable to meet. Furthermore, the committee advises the SBCAG Board of Directors on significant transit issues, such as the consolidation of specialized transportation services.

SBCTAC functions as the social services transportation advisory council, as specified in the Transportation Development Act, California Public Utilities Code Section 99238(a) et seq., for SBCAG.

The eleven-member Measure A Citizens Advisory Committee formed in 2009 for public accountability and transparency, and to assist SBCAG in ensuring that the provisions, requirements, and voter mandates of Measure A are properly carried out. Committee members annually review an audit and collectively submit a compliance letter to the SBCAG Board of Directors in the Board’s capacity as the designated Santa Barbara County Local Transportation Authority.

Committee members are appointed by the SBCAG Board of Directors: four represent North County, four represent the South Coast, and three are at-large members. Service on the committee is voluntary and the appointees have proven to be invaluable partners within their advisory role and as community ambassadors.
