APAC is made up of members throughout the county who are Access riders, family members of Access riders, representatives of organizations that provide services to Access riders and representatives of organizations that support Access riders who speak English as a second language.

In 2023, APAC gave guidance to Metro that helped improve on-time performance of Access vehicles, assisted in broadening the community reach and engagement for Metro’s ADA Transition Plan (a plan to removing barriers and improving access for everyone that is required through the American’s with Disability Act), advised on an innovative new same-day service and given ongoing feedback to Metro staff on improving Access Transportation for all riders.
