COG Board & TPPC Meetings

The Kern COG Board of Directors is comprised of one elected official from each of the 11 incorporated cities in Kern County, two Kern County Supervisors and ex-officio members representing Caltrans and Golden Empire Transit District. Monthly board meetings provide the public forum for discussion and collaborative decision-making on significant issues of regional transportation and mobility. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month.

The Transportation Planning and Policy Committee (TPPC) makes technical funding decisions about how Kern COG transportation dollars are spent. The committee is made up of one representative from each of Kern’s 11 incorporated cities, two county supervisors, and a representative each from Caltrans, Golden Empire Transit District and the Joint Planning Policy Board (military). Meetings are held immediately preceding the Kern COG Board meeting.

Kern Government Television rebroadcasts Kern COG’s regular Transportation Planning Policy Committee and COG Board meeting every Monday at 7PM.

Three At-Large Members shall represent varied economic, social and geographic sectors. The at-large members shall be appointed by the Kern COG Board of Directors. The application for at-large members is available here.


The Regional Transportation Modeling Subcommittee (TMC) of the RPAC oversees the regional transportation model and regional growth forecast. The model is used to forecast the demand for future transportation infrastructure by predicting future travel patterns. Some of the forecast input variables include populations, households, employment, school enrollment, income, traffic counts, speeds, intersection configuration, existing and planned transportation networks. The Regional Transportation Modeling Subcommittee meets concurrently with the RPAC.

The Kern Climate Change Task Force (KCCTF) was formed in 2009 to assist Kern COG and its member agencies to meet the goals and objectives of Senate Bill No. 375 (SB 375).  The Kern Climate Change Task Force was folded into the Transportation Modeling Committee in 2010.

SSTAC and PTOC Meetings

The Social Services Technical Advisory Committee (SSTAC) addresses the needs of the transit-dependent, including the elderly and disabled. Specifically the committee:

  1. works with private transportation providers regarding proposed service and transportation planning opportunities;
  2. informs private sector transportation providers of the criteria used in making service decisions and
  3. offers private-sector transportation advisors opportunities to present their ideas on transit plan development

Representatives of transit providers throughout Kern County make up the Public Transit Operators Committee (PTOC), which provides a forum for any transit-related issue, including performance measures, performance audits, short-range transit plans, productivity-enhancing strategies and new regulations. Fundamentally, the committee works to establish a seamless transit system in the county.
