Passenger Advisory Committee

As part of our commitment to continuously improving our services, GBT has organized a Passenger Advisory Committee (PAC). Formed in 2001 of riders from all GBT routes, the PAC meets regularly to discuss all aspects of the service including schedules and routes, shelters and stops and the new technologies being deployed today at GBT. This is an opportunity for our riders and people from throughout the communities we serve, to help us plan for the future. Today, the PAC has 15 active members and the GBT seeks new members regularly.
