Metro Looking for More Citizen Advisers
Metro formed a Riders' Advisory Council a year ago and now is looking to fill eight slots on the 21-member panel that will become vacant because that group's terms are expiring.
The eight vacancies will consist of three slots for Montgomery County residents, one for Prince George's, two for the District and one for Fairfax, as well as one at large slot. Metro makes the final selections of the people to advise the transit authority's board of directors.
The positions are unpaid, but you get the satisfaction of telling the people who run the subways and buses what you think of their performance.
The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on Nov. 3. You can fill out an application form online. It includes questions about your experience with the transit system. Metro says it wants to get a good cross section of riders who have experience with different aspects of the buses and subways.
Many readers of this blog have such experience. If you had to pick one thing for the Riders' Advisory Council to focus on with the board of directors, what would that be?
