Committee on Accessible Transportation
In 1985, the TriMet board formed the Committee on Accessible Transportation (CAT). The primary purpose of this community advisory body is to provide TriMet with ongoing input on topics related to accessibility. CAT also serves by providing TriMet staff a communications link to key stakeholder groups representing persons with disabilities and seniors. The committee’s advisory role broadly covers topics related to transportation accessibility and improvements; using member’s lived experience and practical familiarity with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to provide insight on important decisions impacting mobility options in the Tri-County area.
