Community Advisory Committee (CAC)
We are accepting applications for several seats on the CAC.

The committee is structured to include representatives from across the transportation spectrum. Find out more about the Community Advisory Committee here.
Potential members should meet the following requirements:
• Be interested in various modes of transportation (including, but not limited to, private motor vehicles, bicycling, walking, freight, bus and rail)
• Reside in Orange, Osceola or Seminole counties
• Not work in the transportation industry

Applications can be submitted online or mailed to: MetroPlan Orlando, ATTN: CAC Application, 250 South Orange Avenue, Suite 200, Orlando, FL 32801.
