Coast RTA announced that is has vacancies on its Service
Advisory Committee (SAC) for 2019 and is in the process of
recruiting new members to this special committee, which meets
several times per year.
"We created the Service Advisory Committee in 2016 with the
intent to meet periodically with committee members to check in and
solicit feedback from them on our overall bus service. The members
also serve as Mystery Riders and Community Ambassadors for Coast
RTA," said Brian Piascik, Coast RTA General Manager/CEO. "The
committee is comprised of Coast RTA passengers (fixed route and
paratransit) and drivers. Its mission is to provide honest,
customer-oriented feedback to Coast RTA on its bus service,
customer service and other topics of interest. We hope to have
applicants represented from Horry and Georgetown Counties who use
our fixed routes and paratransit services."
In addition to passengers and drivers, Coast RTA will appoint a
board member representative to the committee as well as recruit
members from Horry and Georgetown Community who wish to serve on
the Service Advisory Committee as an ambassador for Coast RTA.
Committee members will be asked to attend 3-4 meetings throughout
the year. Meetings are anticipated to last about two hours and will
be held on nights or weekends to accommodate members who may work.
Members will be notified of meetings in advance.
"We've had several successful meetings in the past couple of
years and see the committee as an opportunity for our passengers
and community supporters to have an active role in the molding of
Coast RTA's service and to gain an understanding of the day to day
operations of the local transit authority," Piascik added.
Coast RTA will provide transportation to and from the meetings
for members who may need it. Refreshments will be served as well,
if allowed in the meeting location.
Anyone interested in applying for the Committee is asked to email
the SAC contact, Michelle Cantey at [email protected].
Applications may be picked up at the Conway Terminal; Ivory Wilson
Transfer Center in Myrtle Beach; or, by clicking here.
Applications are due to Coast RTA by December 31, 2018. Any emails
should list SAC in the subject line. For additional information,
please call 843.488.0865. The meeting dates for 2019 have not been
scheduled at this time.
