  1. And what are the qualifications of these board members? Have they driven a us?Have they ever rode a bus on a regular basis?

  2. Board members are nominated for appointment by the county executive and their nominations are approved by county council. Our charter states that one of the Board members must also be a member of county council. Our Board members come from a range of backgrounds; transit use is not a prerequisite for nomination, though we do have Board members that use the system.

    We have biographies of all the Board members posted on our website -- you can read more about their backgrounds at

  3. Why are meeting agendas and minutes not being posted to the site in a timely fashion???? So much for transparency.
