About AzTA

AzTA was formed in 1987 in response to growing public transportation programs throughout the state.  Early on, the founding members of the Association felt that both the private and public sectors could be well represented by an Association that could address their collective needs, conduct statewide events, and advocate for improvements to programs and services at the municipal, regional, and state level.  The Association has nearly 400 members from the public and private sectors.  A complete listing of members can be found at Member Directory.

The Board of Directors provides the leadership and direction to Association staff.  It meets monthly, and on an annual basis in retreat format to complete strategic planning, approve the Association budget and elect officers.  The Executive Committee is authorized to provide direct oversight and prepare agendas for Association events, and is supported by a committee structure for advocacy, events, and modal issues.  The 25 member Board of Directors represent statewide public and private sector public transportation programs.  The Board is made up of permanent seats (designated recipients and transit agencies), greater Arizona seats (primarily small MPOs and COGs), and private sector seats.  For a view of the organization, go to Governance.

The Association is funded in part by membership dues and revenues from conferences and events; often times the Association is the recipient of grant funds for special projects.  The Association employs government services staff for the purpose of advocacy at the municipal and state levels.  The Association hosts three major events each year including a day at the Capitol, usually on the last Thursday of January, an Annual Conference in partnership with the Arizona Department of Transportation, usually in mid-April, and an annual Golf Tournament, usually the second Wednesday in September.  Follow these events at AzTA Events.

You can follow the Association at its website at www.AzTA.org, or on Twitter @ Arizona_Transit and Facebook @ ArizonaTransitAssociation.
