Who We Are

History & Overview

Regional government in Shasta County can be traced back to 1967 when a Joint Powers Authority was created between Shasta County and the cities of Redding and Anderson to create a Regional Planning Council. This council was dissolved in 1981 with the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency's (SRTA's) designation as a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).  On July 1, 2012, SRTA became an independent and distinct transportation agency.  In April 2022, the member agencies affirmed the roles and responsibilities of SRTA as the region’s MPO and local transportation commission as documented in the Cooperative Agreement with SRTA for Member Agency Participation.

Board Members

SRTA is a legally separate public agency with its own governing board. The board consists of 3 members of the Shasta County Board of Supervisors; 1 member from each of the cities of Anderson, Redding, and Shasta Lake; and 1 member of the Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA). 

The current agenda packet is posted in the Agenda Center no less than 72 hours before a scheduled SRTA Board of Directors meeting. Agenda items may be viewed and printed individually.
