Metro is committed to safeguarding the transit community by taking a holistic, equitable and welcoming approach to public safety, in recognition that each individual is entitled to a safe, dignified and human experience. The transit Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) has been established to support Metro in achieving this mission.

Purpose and Role

The PSAC works with Metro’s Customer Experience Department, System Security and Law Enforcement, Office of the CEO, Office of Civil Rights, and Office for Equity and Race in developing a community-based approach to public safety on the transit system.

Committee Membership

Metro’s PSAC is comprised of a diverse group of individuals that regularly ride the system and have professional or personal experience that meaningfully contribute to the committee. Members have expertise in areas of racial justice, equitable transit, social services, homelessness, mental health, accessibility, public safety and law enforcement. Metro is committed to ensuring that the perspectives of older adults, youth, women and girls are represented on the committee.

The committee is formed by 15 voting community members, three alternate (non-voting) community members, three ex-officio (non-voting) staff members, and two alternate ex-officio (non-voting) staff members.
