About TEAC

TriMet’s Transit Equity Advisory Committee (TEAC) provides insight and guidance to the General Manager on issues of equity, access, and inclusion. Members represent a diverse cross-section of community leaders and serves to extend the agency’s outreach and community involvement, as well as serve as a link to community organizations and provide input on improving service for transit-dependent riders.
