Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC)

CapMetro is growing its Public Safety program. Our new focused approach will better serve customers, staff and the community, and position the agency to serve the Central Texas of today and the transit system CapMetro is building for tomorrow.

The Public Safety Advisory Committee meets to provide input and feedback to CapMetro staff and the Board of Directors, and will help develop and steer the program, including guiding the creation of policies and procedures for the comprehensive program.

The committee is composed of 10 members appointed by the CapMetro Board. One seat is reserved for a representative from the Amalgamated Transit Union, and another for a retired law enforcement professional. We work with stakeholders, members of our community and local organizations to recruit and appoint members with a wide range of backgrounds, experience and knowledge to support this comprehensive approach to safety.

The committee meets the last Friday of every other month from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and there are other engagements and workgroup opportunities. All regularly scheduled meetings are open to the public.
