Metro’s Board of Directors wants to hear from people like you.

Our customers with disabilities and senior citizens have a lot to say about our service. More importantly, they have a lot of good ideas to share. Customers with disabilities and senior citizens have a chance to participate in making Metro better. The Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC) advises Metro on ways to improve Metrobus, Metrorail and MetroAccess.

Metro is currently soliciting applications from customers interested in filling vacancies on its Accessibility Advisory Committee.

We encourage you to apply for membership if you meet the following minimum qualifications:

  • Have a disability or are senior (65+) and regularly ride Metrobus, Metrorail and/or MetroAccess;
  • Live in the District of Columbia, Prince Georges County, Montgomery County, Arlington County, Fairfax City, City of Falls Church, Fairfax County or the City of Alexandria;
  • Are not employed by Metro or a Metro contractor; and
  • Are not an elected official.

Metro’s Board of Directors will select candidates that represent an accurate cross-section of customers who are senior and/ or have a disability and reflect a broad representation of people from different geographical locations in the WMATA service area. Not every applicant will be selected. All applications will be retained for 2 years from the date submitted for future consideration.

If selected, you will advise our Board of Directors. You will attend AAC meetings on the 1st Monday of every month between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and subcommittee meetings on the 2nd and 3rd Mondays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. as appropriate. You will have the opportunity to help make a difference in the way Metro serves seniors and persons with disabilities.
