This Committee advises the Wasco County Commissioners and the county’s Public Transportation provider – The Link Public Transit! The committee considers how transportation funds should be spent and provides the Commissioners with information about the community’s special transportation needs, particularly related to how projects will benefit seniors and persons with disabilities.
The Advisory Committee strives to represent all members of the community but is particularly focused on those with greater transportation needs such as:
- Living in small communities (e.g., in South County)
- Living with a disability
- Other user groups who may rely on public transportation
The County invites applicants to seek appointment who can represent these communities either through their lived experience, work or volunteer activities.
Visit the county’s website to download an application, or contact Kathy Clark to request an application be mailed or emailed.
Committee positions are voluntary with a two-year term.
Meetings are held quarterly, or approximately four times per year.
Meetings are typically held in person at the Transit Center in The Dalles, with zoom options available.
Applications will be accepted through May 19, 2022.
