Regional Network Management Council

The Transit Regional Network Management Council brings together leadership from MTC and transit agencies to provide guidance on regional transit policies and actions to be taken as implementation plans develop.

Noah Berger

The Regional Network Management (RNM) framework adopted by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission in February 2023 was established based on recommendations from the Blue Ribbon Transit Recovery Task Force and the Network Management Business Case Advisory Group.

The RNM Council is comprised of representatives from MTC and general manager-level representatives of Bay Area transit agencies. The members of the council understand transit operations; can represent the interests of their stakeholders; deliver critical input on regional transit polices; develop actionable implementation plans; and provide regional leadership.

The RNM Council’s work includes focus areas for customer focused initiatives as identified in the Transit Transformation Action Plan. These will directly benefit new and existing transit riders and help to achieve the Regional Network Management vision of a unified regional transit system that serves all Bay Area populations.

The Council meets monthly on the fourth Monday of each month.
