Regional Transit Authority (RTA) Council

The RTA Council fosters collaboration, promotes industry best practices, and provides a statewide vision for transit.

The 2018-2019 Task Force on RTA Performance and Funding recommended reinvigorating the RTA Council. The Council comprises representatives from the 15 RTAs, the MBTA and MassDOT. In its new role, the Council will expand upon the work of the Task Force by helping to create a culture of continuous improvement, innovation and performance management leading to efficient transportation across the Commonwealth.

The Council provides opportunities to share best practices regarding security and public safety planning, service delivery, cost savings, and administrative efficiencies, as well as provide a forum for discussing current issues, events, and areas of interest in Massachusetts regional transit. Agenda items have included service planning, workforce transportation, battery electric bus deployment, and microtransit.

The RTA Council meets on a quarterly basis. Please check the upcoming events below for information on the next scheduled Council meeting.
