BART seeks members for Business Advisory Council

The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (District) is seeking new members for its Business Advisory Council (BAC) for the next term (2024 to 2026) and your organization is invited to apply for membership.

The BAC was established in 2010 to encourage communications between the District and the small business community and to advise the District in its efforts to ensure that small businesses are afforded equal opportunities to participate on District contracts and agreements. Small businesses include Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, Disadvantage Veteran Business Enterprises, Minority-Owned Business Enterprises, Women-Owned Business Enterprises and Micro Small Business Entities.

The BAC currently consists of 14 members representing the small business community covering geographical areas of the District’s service area as well as representation from the following industries: professional services, architecture and engineering, procurement and construction. Committee members serve a two-year period, on staggered terms. Meetings are typically held once every other month from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in-person at BART Headquarters with the option to join virtually (via Zoom).

Members are involved in providing valuable feedback on District contracting, services and procurement policies, programs and practices.

If you are interested in serving on the BAC, please submit an application (linked here), a letter of recommendation from your organization, as well as a cover letter describing your interest. Please submit these application documents to the Office of Civil Rights by emailing
