The RTD-Denver ADA Paratransit Advisory Committee (APAC)

 

The RTD-Denver ADA Paratransit Advisory Committee (APAC) is a group of people chosen by RTD to represent Access-a-Ride (AaR) riders.  The committee works to improve the AaR experience by correcting discriminatory practices, making the service safer, calling attention to faulty driver training, and making suggestions of how AaR can be more inclusive toward people with all types of disabilities.  Two years ago a member of APAC pointed out to RTD the reason there was a driver shortage and why AaR cannot keep drivers is because of low driver pay, resulting in a $2.00/hr increase which created more applicants for driver jobs and lessened the driver turnover rate, thus ending the driver shortage.

The current committee is made up of people with physical disabilities, those who are deaf or have low-hearing, people who are blind or have low-vision, and parents of autistic children and children with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

RTD uses the following questionnaire to select the members of this committee: http://www.rtd-denver.com/documents/apac-application.pdf and announces they are looking for applications through the on-hold recording when making AaR reservations.

Krystin Trustman is the CCDC representative at the APAC.
