East Bay Paratransit’s Rider Advisory Committee, the EBPAC (East Bay Paratransit Access Committee)

The East Bay Paratransit Access Committee (EBPAC) is a 16-member committee consisting of 12 East Bay Paratransit users from all parts of the service area, and 4 other members and individuals from city programs or social service agencies that have ADA riders as clients.

The Committee was established by East Bay Paratransit to advise management staff on a variety of items including changes to procedures or policies, reviewing budgets and funding claims, and outreach to people with disabilities who need to know about paratransit.

EBPAC Meetings are held every other month.  Travel to and from the meetings is free for members.

EBPAC members work with management staff on issues such as:

  • Developing changes to procedures or policies
  • Reviewing budgets and funding claims
  • Providing input on updates to East Bay Paratransit documents and correspondence
  • Observing driver training
  • Outreach to people with disabilities who need to know about paratransit

In addition, the EBPAC offers a public forum for the community to bring their comments or concerns about paratransit service issues.

Members have two-year terms and must go through an application process which includes an interview. New member appointments are generally made in the late spring.
