The MARC Riders Advisory Council is an independent body that strives to assist MDOT-MTA with improving MARC Train service. The Council consists of 15 members, all of whom are regular MARC Train commuters. Riders from all three lines serve on the Council, with the goal of representing an accurate cross-section of customers.
If you are interested in joining the MARC RAC, an application will be posted by March 1. Please come back to this website at that time. Applications will be accepted throughout the month of March and new members will be selected in April.
