Board of Directors
SunLine Transit Agency is a Joint Powers Authority, a public agency created by the nine cities of the Coachella Valley and Riverside County. Each of these member entities appoints one of its elected officials to serve on the SunLine Board.
The SunLine Transit Agency Board of Directors usually meets 10 times each year. Noon on the fourth Wednesday of the month is the usual time for the regular meetings. The July and August meetings are combined and usually held on the last Wednesday in July, and the November and December meetings are combined and usually held on the first Wednesday in December. Special Meetings may be called by the Chairman as they are needed.
The current sitting Vice-Chair assumes the position of Chairman at the beginning of July 1 and a new Vice-Chair is elected. Both serve for annual terms. The Chair and Vice-Chair are selected from among the Board Members appointed by the member entities.
Committees usually meet prior to the Board Meetings on Wednesday mornings at various times. Sometimes circumstances require different meeting times and these are set on an as needed basis. The standing committees of the Board are:
Chairman’s Executive Committee typically composed of the Chair, Vice-Chair and two senior Board members. Meets as needed to assess opportunities or concerns facing the Agency.
Finance Committee meets each month to review checks issued, new contracts, monthly budget reports and any other financial matters.
Personnel - Loss Review Committee meets as needed to review high level claims, litigation or personnel issues.
Taxi Committee meets monthly to review topics concerning the regulation of taxicabs, a function of SunLine Services Group and administered by the SunLine Regulatory Administration.
Marketing Committee meets as needed to discuss marketing of transit services or marketing aspects of the bus shelter program or bus wraps.
