Local Advisory Council (LAC)

The purpose of the Local Advisory Council (LAC) is to serve as the foundation for assessing, planning and strengthening public transportation services in the community and to provide recommendations and input to local public transportation providers and other governing entities.  There are a few things every Local Advisory Council must have:

  • Every transit system in Michigan must have an LAC.
  • At least half of the LAC must be people representing seniors and people with disabilities.
  • It must meet at least once a year.
  • It must review and comment on the transit system’s accessibility plan.
