Regional Advisory Council

The Regional Advisory Council (RAC) is a standing committee of the Valley Regional Transit Board.

Members of the Council provide advice to VRT on its transportation programs and disseminate mobility information to their stakeholders. The RAC is charged with oversight of updates to the Transportation Service Coordination Plan. Members also provide input and guidance on the Local Mobility Management Network (District 3C).

The Regional Advisory Council is scheduled to meet on the third Tuesday every month except August. The meetings are held at 9 a.m. in the first-floor Board Room at the VRT administrative offices, 700 NE 2nd Street in Meridian. The only exception to the 9 a.m. meeting time is November, when the Council will meet at 11 a.m. (joint meeting with the VRT Executive Board). Posted agendas will contain a call-in link for remote participation.

Our Vision

We envision an accessible regional transportation system that is built upon meaningful stakeholder input and feedback.
