Regional Transportation Coordinating Council

What is an RTCC?

A Regional Transportation Coordinating Council (RTCC) is a local organization focused on delivering effective transportation. With support from Minnesota Council on Transportation Access (MCOTA), Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), and Minnesota Department of Human Services, an RTCC is established to improve transit access and coordination for people of all ages and abilities. RTCCs are designed to partner with MnDOT and oversee coordination between transportation providers, service agents, and the private sector in order to fill transportation gaps, streamline access to transportation, and increase options of where and when to travel.

Which RTCC is active in my area? 

The Southeast RTCC is under development with partners across the region. Planning began in 2018 with a Steering Committee conducting outreach to stakeholders across the region to identify priorities and opportunities for regional transportation coordination. The results of the community engagement efforts, as well as the Steering Committee meeting minutes, Southeast RTCC implementation plan, and draft by-laws, are available on the Minnesota Council on Transportation Access (MCOTA) website.

What is Three Rivers' role in Southeast RTCC?

On behalf of the Southeast RTCC Steering Committee, Three Rivers secured funding for the RTCC during its first year of planning. The first year ended on June 30, 2019. Three Rivers intends to continue its participation in the RTCC as a representative of our service area, transportation programs, and the people we serve.
