Policy Board

The Policy Board is the governing body of SJTPO. The Policy Board provides direction and oversight and makes all final decisions on administrative, personnel, and financial matters, along with the approval of SJTPO’s transportation planning documents and programs.

The Policy Board consists of eleven voting members: one elected official from each county government, one municipal elected official from each county (specifically including the mayors of Atlantic City and Vineland), and one representative each from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), New Jersey Transit (NJ TRANSIT), and the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA).

The Policy Board meets six times a year, typically on the fourth Monday, with meetings scheduled bimonthly. An annual reorganization meeting, at which an election of officers is conducted, is held in January. Meeting dates are available below in the Upcoming Meetings tab. All public meetings are open to the public.

Equal Opportunity (Title VI) 

SJTPO fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. SJTPO public meetings are always held in ADA-accessible facilities and transit-accessible locations when possible. SJTPO works to accommodate all reasonable requests for translation, interpretation, and auxiliary services that are necessary for individuals to participate in SJTPO’s programs and activities. SJTPO encourages that requests be made at least seven days before public meetings. Requests can be submitted through the Translation Request Form, emailed to TitleVI@sjtpo.org, or by calling the SJTPO office at (856) 794-1941. For more information on SJTPO’s Civil Rights Program, visit www.sjtpo.org/TitleVI.
