Several state laws, as well as law established in court cases, dictate what documents the Gunnison Valley Transportation Authority (RTA), as a government agency, must retain. Under the state Open Records Act, we must allow inspection of certain records we keep in the course running the RTA. However, there is no requirement that the RTA create new records because of a citizen request. If an RTA representative receives any request for
records, that representative should consult with the RTA Executive Director or the RTA Attorney.

Some records relating to vehicles and vehicle maintenance are by necessity kept by the contractor who provides transit services under a transportation services agreement. These records are noted as kept “by contractor” in this policy.
