The Access for All (AFA) Advisory Committee advises the TPB on transportation issues, programs, policies, and services that are important to low-income communities, minority communities and people with disabilities. The mission of this committee is to identify concerns of low-income and minority populations and persons with disabilities, and to determine whether and how these issues might be addressed within the TPB process. The committee is chaired by a TPB member, currently Patrick Wojahn from the College Park City Council in Maryland. Membership of the committee includes approximately 25 community leaders from low-income communities, minority communities and persons with disabilities.
Each year the AFA comments on the long-range plan. The AFA received a presentation on the significant changes to the Draft 2011 CLRP at its July 14, 2011 meeting. The AFA encouraged the District of Columbia Department of Transportation to invest in further bus lanes, and urged the Virginia department of Transportation to ensure that bus service wouldn't be negatively impacted by the development of the Dulles Metrorail project and the HOT lanes projects on I-95/I-395 and the Capital Beltway.
