“I have been an accessibility advisory member for over 20 years. Since we founded the “Elderly & Handicapped Advisory Committee” in 1983, Muni has made greats strides in making the system more accessible. As a Giants fan and a power chair user, I’m most proud of MAAC’s efforts to make the Ballpark Express service wheelchair accessible. We are proud of what we have accomplished, but there is always more work to be done.” – Bruce Oka

The Muni Accessibility Advisory Committee (MAAC) is a group of seniors and people with disabilities who are experienced Muni customers. Committee members provide input on the accessibility of all aspects of Muni’s services. Recent examples include reviewing the specifications for and testing a prototype of the new low-floor vehicles for accessibility, and participating in planning for upcoming Bus Rapid Transit projects on Van Ness Avenue and Geary Boulevard. MAAC was also closely involved in the development of the T-Third light rail line.
