Coast RTA announced that it is in the process of recruiting new
members to its Service Advisory Committee for 2019.
"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 and driver(s) 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
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 are available by clicking here or may be
picked up at the Conway Terminal, Ivory Wilson Transfer Center in
Myrtle Beach. Applications are due to Coast RTA by December 31,
2018. Any emails should list SAC in the subject line.
