The Heart of Iowa Regional Transit Agency, HIRTA, is the State designated transit system for the counties of Boone, Dallas, Jasper, Madison, Marion, Story and Warren. One of our outreach efforts, is facilitating a Transportation Advisory Group (TAG) in each of our counties.  The success of a TAG is dependent upon having dedicated and engaged members willing and able to commit to a minimum of 2 meetings per year.


The TAG acts as a liaison between local communities, business representatives, agency representatives and HIRTA. The TAG provides local and regional input regarding transportation issues important to the region and included in the HIRTA Strategic Plan.


Feedback from the TAG is incorporated into the Central Iowa Regional Transportation Planning Alliance (CIRTPA) Passenger Transportation Plan (PTP). The HIRTA Board of Directors receives regular updates from the TAG, including but not limited to suggested updates to the HIRTA Strategic Plan, recommended service improvements and transit project selections.


Appointed representatives will serve as voting and non-voting member on the HIRTA TAG. 

Any governmental entity located wholly or partially within HIRTA’s Region and having a population of at least 1,000, shall be eligible to be a Voting Member.

Non-voting members will represent local business, agencies and groups including but not limited to, health and human services, persons with disabilities, senior citizens, youth, the business and freight moving communities, traditional automobile users and advocates for non-motorized transportation or public transit.
