The Board of Governors directs Tulare County Association of Governments (TCAG). This group is composed of one representative from each of the eight cities, five members of the County Board of Supervisors, three members-at-large, and on representative of public transit. These 17 members act as the Council of Governments (COG), the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA), and the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). These members, plus the District Director of Caltrans, sit as the Policy Advisory Committee.
This body offers advice on issues that will be provided to the Board of Governors. The Transportation Authority is also directed by the TCAG Board, less the at-large TCAG Board members and Caltrans representative.
