Regional Public Transportation Advisory Committee (RPTAC)

RPTAC members are appointed by the COIC Board of Directors to help shape current and future transit services in Central Oregon. As a regional forum, RPTAC identifies transportation needs of each Central Oregon community, educates citizens about the value of public transportation, advocates for new and expanded services, and reviews fare policies. RPTAC meetings also provide a platform for committee members and citizens to provide comments about service expansions, reductions, or alterations.

RPTAC typically meets on the third Wednesday of every other month from 1:30 – 3:00 pm. All meetings are held in accessible locations with an option to participate remotely via Zoom.

View the Committee bylaws here. (Amended 2020)

CET is accepting applications for new RPTAC members through September 29, 2023! 

RPTAC member positions are designated by geography and constituent communities. Terms of appointment are two years. There are currently openings for members who live or work in the following communities: Bend, Madras, Redmond, Culver/Metolius, Terrebonne, La Pine/Sunriver, and Prineville.
