As Chair of the Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee to the MTA, I’d like to welcome you to our website!
I encourage everyone to use this web page as a resource of information, to learn about where we have been and where we are going. The PCAC consists of three councils, the NYCTRC represents the riders of New York’s subways and buses, the MNRCC acts on behalf of Metro-North commuters, and the LIRRCC is the voice of the riders of Long Island Railroad. On this site you can find meeting minutes and council testimony for each of those councils as well as a plethora of research reports that encompass numerous issues that impact all riders. The subways, buses, and commuter rail lines keep the New York Region moving and connected, and it is important that we have a say in how our transit system is run. Since 1981 the PCAC has stood up for riders and throughout this site you will find a myriad of ways we have made our voices heard.
Please browse our website to learn more about what our organization does and join our mailing list so you can become more involved.
Chair – Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee to the MTA
The Mission of the Permanent Citizens Advisory Commitee (PCAC) is to advise the MTA on behalf of subway, bus, and commuter rail users in the formulation and implementation of MTA policy and service, and to hold the MTA Board and MTA management accountable to riders. The PCAC also provides the MTA with informed and timely advice on such matters as service, finance, intergovernmental relations, communication, and management. The PCAC consists of 38 members all of whom are regular MTA commuters on Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Railroad, and New York City Transit.
