Regional Transit Coordination Committee

The Regional Transit Coordination Committee (RTCC) is comprised of representatives from more than 25 agencies and organizations that provide public transportation, health and human services, as well as those interested in the coordination of public transportation and client transportation services for the 10-county capital area which is comprised of Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson counties.

 

RTCC Vision

To provide full mobility and access to healthcare, human services, employment, education, commerce, social and community services for all persons in the region.

 

RTCC Mission

  • Secure formal state and local agency agreements and identify and address funding, regulatory, programmatic, attitudinal and geographic barriers to implement coordinated transportation in the Capital Area.

programs to serve the special needs of transit-dependent populations beyond traditional public transportation services and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complementary paratransit
services.
