Fort Worth Gains Seat on Transportation Body

FORT WORTH, TX — Fort Worth will gain a seat on the Regional Transportation Council, pushing membership on the transportation policy-making body to 45.

Fort Worth will now have four seats on the RTC, second in representation to Dallas’ six seats. The additional seat is a result of population and employment in the region’s second-largest city.

Fort Worth’s current representatives:

  • Mayor Pro Tem Gyna Bivens
  • District 9 Councilmember Elizabeth Beck
  • District 3 Councilmember Michael Crain


Other significant changes to the bylaws include the addition of 13 new cities with a population over 5,000, mandatory rotation of seats shared by counties, and confirming the ability of members of the nominating subcommittee to be officers.

In addition to approving the bylaws, the RTC provided direction to NCTCOG staff to work with the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth on a weighted voting mechanism to determine if membership could be reduced to 40.
