The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District (District) sponsors three customer advisory committees. Committee members provide input and express the preferences of fellow passengers to transit managers and staff on a regular and ongoing basis. District staff attends these meetings, provide support and act as a conduit to the Board of Directors. The District does not offer compensation or reimbursement of expenses associated with the attendance of the meetings. All meetings are open to the public.

Bus Passenger Advisory Committee (BPAC)

BPAC was created to discuss scheduling changes, facilities planning and operational matters relating to Golden Gate Transit regional bus services. BPAC is made up of 11 members representing Golden Gate Transit bus service areas in Marin, Sonoma, San Francisco, and Contra Costa counties, and is comprised of Golden Gate Transit customers, with a focus on riders of our regional services.

BPAC meets on the fourth Wednesday of every other month (January, March, etc.), from 6 pm to 8 pm, at Whistlestop Wheels, 930 Tamalpais Avenue, across the street from the San Rafael Transit Center.

Ferry Passenger Advisory Committee (FPAC)

FPAC was created to better address customer concerns and provide a forum for discussion of District proposals. With the help of District staff, FPAC reviews District operations and plans as they relate to the quality of Golden Gate Ferry services. By expressing the needs of fellow Larkspur and Sausalito ferry passengers, FPAC advises on means to improve services and operations, and recommends actions that can make ferry service as attractive and effective as possible.

FPAC meets on the second Monday of every other month from noon to 1:15 pm in Bayside Rooms 3 & 4 at the Port of San Francisco offices (Pier 1) in San Francisco.

Advisory Committee on Accessibility (ACA)

ACA was created to discuss accessible transportation and other matters pertaining to seniors and persons with disabilities. ACA is made up of members representing Golden Gate Transit bus service areas in Marin, Sonoma, San Francisco, and Contra Costa counties, and is comprised of active, dedicated volunteers from the senior and disabled communities who use Golden Gate Transit buses, Golden Gate Ferry, and Whistlestop Wheels regional paratransit services.

ACA meets on the third Thursday of every other month (January, March, etc.), from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm, at the Golden Gate Transit offices at 1011 Andersen Drive in San Rafael.
