Working with VCTC

Ventura County Transportation Commission seeks a Transit Planner to perform professional-level, analytical, and technical duties in support of programming and transit planning, coordination, and operational activities.  Incumbent conducts special studies, surveys, and research assignments; completes a variety of reports and program documentation; monitors program implementation, performance and compliance; provides support to one or more advisory committees; and provides coordination with other transit agencies.  Incumbent also provides staff support in: data analysis and program reporting for inclusion in Federal and State Transit Grants; the development of scheduling and routing of VCTC Intercity and Valley Express services; preparation and submittal of National Transit Data (NTD) reports; and outreach and marketing activities.

The Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC), which serves as the regional transportation planning agency for Ventura County, is required by Section 99246 of the California Public Utilities Code to triennially designate an entity other than itself to conduct a performance audit of its activities. Operators that receive funding under Article 4 of the TDA are required to have a performance audit. Between fiscal years (FY) 2013 and 2016, this includes VCTC, Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD), Thousand Oaks Transit, Simi Valley Transit, and Valley Express. Claimants that receive funding under Article 4.5 or Article 8 are not statutorily required to have a performance audit; however, to enable a comprehensive and objective review that serves the benefit of both the RPTA and the transit provider, performance audits should be conducted of all operators that are allocated funding under the TDA. This would include the County of Ventura, Camarillo Area Transit, Moorpark City Transit, Ojai Trolley, the City of Fillmore, and the City of Santa Paula. Currently there are no Article 4.5 claimants in Ventura County for this audit period.
