As part of its ongoing commitment to bring equity and inclusion to all aspects of its decision-making, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) today announced that it is seeking applicants to join the agency’s ADA Advisory Committee.
The Committee, comprised of up to 12 members from across the CTA service area of Chicago and 35 suburbs, is an important part of CTA’s longstanding and industry-leading commitment to accessibility.
Meeting four times a year, the Committee discusses and provides informed input on a wide range of accessibility issues, from infrastructure maintenance and investments to long-range planning and guidance on current services, policies and practices. The Committee is also a vital asset in facilitating dialogue between the CTA and the disability community and finding ways to further improve the accessibility of public transit services.
Established in 1993, the Committee includes regular CTA riders who reflect a broad cross-section of the region’s disability community, and who share a commitment to representing the interests of persons with a wide range of disabilities.
Applications for these unpaid Committee positions are available at transitchicago.com/accessibility, or by contacting Irma Gomez-Fierro, Manager of ADA Compliance Programs, at email@example.com or (773) 449-8389.
Application deadline is September 19, 2022.
