Get more out of your CASTA membership! Participate in a committee or two. Serving on CASTA committees is voluntary and open to anyone employed by a CASTA member agency. Don’t worry – meetings are typically held at the two conferences or by phone and do not require extensive preparation or follow-up. Committees serve as advisory bodies for staff and board to ensure CASTA is representing and working on the issues critical to the CASTA membership.
Finance and Policy Committee
Develops and purses CASTA’s state and federal advocacy agenda. The Policy and Finance Committee meets twice a year at the two transit conferences and by phone during the legislative session.
Colorado Resort Transit Providers (CREST)
Addresses issues specific to providing transit in mountain resort communities. The CREST committee meets during the two transit conferences and more often at the discretion of the chair.
Elderly and Disabled Transportation Providers
Tackles issues specific to providing transportation for the elderly and people with disabilities. Meetings typically include an educational component followed by topical discussion. Committee meets at least twice a year at the two transit conferences and more often at the discretion of the chair.
Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) Advisory Committee
The RTAP committee is made up of representatives from rural and specialized transit agencies. The committee oversees the administration of the RTAP contract for CDOT, discusses regional and agency specific training needs and makes suggestions on how CASTA can assist in meeting those needs. This committee meets quarterly, with two of those meetings scheduled in conjunction with CASTA’s conferences.
