Transit Equity Advisory Committee

TriMet’s Transit Equity Advisory Committee (TEAC) consists of up to 21 members and plays a vital role in advising the General Manager on matters of equity, access and inclusion.

TEAC has been instrumental in helping TriMet develop and implement a variety of equity initiatives, from our reduced fare program to decriminalizing fare-evasion citation processes. The committee has facilitated connections between hundreds of nonprofit and community organizations, enabling access to millions of dollars in free fare grants through TriMet’s Access Transit program. TEAC has also provided important feedback on enhancing safety measures for public transit and establishing affordable housing goals as part of our transit-oriented development strategy.

Committee members represent a diverse cross-section of community leaders, advocates and liaisons for disadvantaged and historically underrepresented communities. The committee serves as a vital link between TriMet and community organizations. TEAC helps to ensure the voices of transit-dependent riders are heard and considered in decision-making processes.
