TCATA Governance & Funding

Board of Trustees

The Twin Cities Area Transportation Authority and the Articles of Incorporation were formed in 1974 under Public Mass Transit Act 55. The authority is governed by the TCATA Board of Trustees that are appointed by the City of Benton Harbor Commission. As a public authority serving the citizens, the TCATA board of trustees meet every month to develop policies and upgrades to better serve the communities. The public is always welcome to attend to share ideas and feedback.  In fact, we encourage it!
