Richmond Metropolitan Transportation Authority
The mission of the RMTA is to build and operate a variety of public system and offer public services, especially transportation related, within the Richmond metropolitan area, each of which is operated and financed primarily by user fees. Our efforts are dedicated to the following constituents:
we will provide safe, convenient, efficient System and excellent customer service while maintaining the lowest feasible costs.
we will promote a safe and pleasant work environment, provide an opportunity to advance according to their abilities and fairly compensate based on performance.
we will operate in a financially sound and prudent manner and meet all debt payments and other legally imposed requirements to insure the protection of their interests. Our mission can be best accomplished through the sound management of existing projects and consideration of additional projects as approved by the City of Richmond and the Counties of Chesterfield and Henrico.
These projects are financed primarily through user fee schedules which offer the lowest possible costs to the public, fairly compensate employees, and offer financial safety to bondholders.
In accordance with legislation by the Virginia General Assembly, the Authority is managed by a sixteen member Board. In addition to the Board, the organization is made up of key executive staff to manage: Engineering, Finance, Human Financial Documents and Auditing. Executive staff has oversight of the 80 staff members of the Authority.
