VCTC Transit Needs Hearing Postponed

April 20, 2015

The Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) has postponed the Commission’s Hearing Board’s public review of the county's annual "unmet transit needs" draft findings until May 18.  The rescheduled public meeting will convene at 1:30 p.m. at the city of Camarillo's Council Chambers. 

According to VCTC Executive Director Darren Kettle, the Commission's Citizen's Transportation Advisory Committee/Social Service Transportation Advisory Committee (CTAC/SSTAC) simply wanted additional time to review the draft findings and recommendations arising from this year's "unmet transit needs" public process.  CTAC/SSTAC serves as an advisory panel to the Commission and includes representatives from each city and the County, as well as the representatives of the various social service and advocacy organizations and providers in the county as called for in state law.

VCTC's "unmet transit needs" is a public process reviewing the transit needs of individuals and groups in Ventura County.  Public hearings are held on an annual basis to receive public comment and to analyze potential unmet transit needs, and whether they would be reasonable to provide.  As the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA), VCTC is required to conduct this process in order to be eligible to receive Transit Development Act funding from the state.
