The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) at Skagit Transit serves as an essential volunteer advisory body to the Board of Directors and Administration, providing a rider-centric perspective on services, programs, and planning. The CAC's core objectives include offering recommendations on transit operations, fostering community engagement, and ensuring that transit services align with community needs. Its activities are crucial in guiding service enhancements and promoting public transportation advocacy within Skagit County.

It's a chance to make a tangible difference!
