Qualifications, Duties, and Process for AppointmentThe Board of Directors consists of seven members who are residents of seven specific subdistricts served by Lane Transit District. Each member of the Board has been appointed by the governor of Oregon and confirmed by the Oregon State Senate. A Director’s term is four years and, generally, members may be reappointed for a second four-year term.
Board members serve without pay, except that they are reimbursed for expenses incurred in connection with service as a Board member.
LTD’s Board of Directors acts on all policy matters necessary to the safe and efficient delivery of public transportation services to the LTD service area.
MeetingsThe LTD Board meets monthly on the third Wednesday of the month, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Meetings are held at the District’s Administration facility at 3500 East 17th Avenue, Eugene, in the Glenwood area. The Board holds periodic special meetings or work sessions as needed.
Board members serve on subcommittees of the Board, represent the District on intergovernmental committees, such as the Metropolitan Policy Committee, and testify before boards or commissions on transportation-related issues.
Board members also serve as half of the District’s Budget Committee. Each Board member appoints a community member to this committee, which meets in the spring and fall to adopt an annual budget and Community Investment Plan.
Agenda materials and information are provided to the Board in advance of each meeting.
