Who Governs Intercity Transit?

Intercity Transit is governed by an nine-member Board of Directors, the Intercity Transit Authority. The Authority consists of five elected officials who represent the Thurston County Board of Commissioners and the Cities of Lacey, Tumwater, Olympia, and Yelm. Three members are Citizen Representatives appointed by the Board, and one member is a labor representative.

Except for the labor representative, board members represent, and must live in, the public transportation benefit area. A Citizen Representative's term is three years, and the elected officials serve at the pleasure of their respective mayors and Commissioners.

The Authority sets policy and direction for the agency.
