- About WestCAT
The Western Contra Costa County Transit (WCCTA) was established in August 1977 as a Joint Exercise of Powers Agreement between the County of Contra Costa and the cities of Hercules and Pinole. The agency was created with the purpose of owning, operating and administering a public transportation system serving the area between the Richmond/El Sobrante border to the west and the Al Zampa Memorial bridge to the east.
- Board and Committees
WCCTA is governed by a 7-member Board of Directors and supported by professional staff. The two cities of Pinole and Hercules are each represented by two members, while the unincorporated communities of Crockett, Rodeo, and MonTaraBay each have one representative, appointed by the Contra Costa Board of Supervisors.
In addition to the Board of Directors, WCCTA also has the Finance & Administration, Legislative and Marketing committees. Also agendas/notices for the various WCCTA's board committee meetings will be posted on the Agenda page.
