Residents of the eight-county Regional Transportation District who are
interested in public transit issues and community engagement are
encouraged to apply
for one of five vacancies on the
RTD Citizens Advisory Committee.

The 17-member citizens group has advised the agency on its
voter-approved FasTracks program for the past 10 years. The
committee's role has been recently
expanded to also advise RTD on its strategies and initiatives.

RTD invites interested individuals to submit letters of application to
serve on the all-volunteer panel. Appointment is for a three-year
term, with an
opportunity for one reappointment thereafter.

"RTD is one of the premier transit agencies in the country and this is
an exciting time to be part of this organization and the impact it has
on the region,"
Bob Rizzuto, CAC co-chair, said. "We rely on informed citizens who can
join us to guide and provide advice to RTD. We want people who truly
want to make
a difference as we move forward."

CAC members represent a wide variety of backgrounds, interests and
professional experiences. The group's public outreach meetings keep
metro-area citizens
informed of FasTracks progress and RTD programs and encourage input
from local communities.

Individuals interested in applying for a position on the CAC should
email letters of interest to
Leesly.Leon at rtd-denver.com.


Letters must be received by the close of business on March 31, 2016,
and should include:
