Applications Being Accepted from Volunteers for Transportation Disadvantaged Group
Are you interested in improving transportation for the most vulnerable members of our community – older adults, people who have disabilities, or those who are economically disadvantaged? Here’s your chance. MetroPlan Orlando is taking applications for two seats on the Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordinating Board (TDLCB).
We are currently accepting applications for: Citizen Advocate (Non-System User) and For-Profit Operator. The Citizen Advocate does not have to be a regular user of the ACCESS LYNX service and should not be employed by a local government.
The TDLCB coordinates transportation needs of the physically challenged and economically disadvantaged in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties through ACCESS LYNX. People in these volunteer positions attend quarterly meetings and have materials to read and evaluate in between meetings. The application form is available at: MetroPlanOrlando.gov/TDLCB
Composed of representatives from local governments and transportation providers, as well as private citizens, the primary responsibility of the TDLCB is to evaluate service provided by ACCESS LYNX. The TDLCB reviews price, service levels, safety, eligibility and other pertinent issues. Click here to learn more about the group.
