About the Rio Metro Board of Directors

About the Board

Rio Metro’s Board of Directors consists of 19 full members and 2 associate (non-voting) members representing Bernalillo, Sandoval and Valencia counties; the communities of Albuquerque, Belen, Bernalillo, Bosque Farms, Corrales, Los Ranchos de Albuquerque and Rio Rancho; Isleta Pueblo; and the North Central Regional Transit District. Board members are typically elected officials appointed by their government to serve a term of at least one year, and seats are allocated to each member government based on population.

The primary responsibilities of the Board of Directors are to develop broad-based goals and strategies that will support Rio Metro’s long-term success, adopt an annual budget that ensures financial sustainability, and oversee major improvements to the transit network. Board members are also strongly encouraged to advocate for the needs of their constituents and promote Rio Metro’s services in their communities.

Board Resources

Rio Metro Regional Transit District Board of Directors Handbook (coming soon)
The Board of Directors Handbook was created to give new and existing board members an overview of Rio Metro’s regional role, history, unique mix of transit services, board structure and function, employees and transit partners, financial outlook, and upcoming major projects. The handbook is updated annually to ensure that board members have the most current information.

pdfAmerican Public Transportation Association Transit Board Member Handbook
Prepared by the nation’s leading transit association, this handbook addresses issues common to transit boards, including the roles and responsibilities of board members, the job of the chair, evaluating board performance, selecting a CEO, and much more.

pdfBylaws of the Rio Metro Regional Transit District
pdfMid-Region Transit District Governmental Unit Contract
pdfMid-Region Transit District Certification
Rio Metro’s bylaws establish rules for budgeting and finance; the official seal; and Board of Directors’ committees, meetings, conduct and business, and membership. The bylaws’ authority flows from the contract and certification that created the Mid-Region Transit District (Rio Metro’s previous name).
