The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is also known as CTRM Authority is an autonomous agency founded by Texas government with the intention of improving the transportation system in a couple of most busiest Counties in whole Texas i.e. Williamson County and Travis County.
The primary mission which was set by the government for this firm was to come up with innovate ideas that if applied can help them to reduce the transportation problem. Traffic congestion is a rising problem in big counties of Texas cities, and unluckily, it isn’t just an insignificant inconvenience.
Being stuck in traffic may cause a mental attitude that would negative, stress, and even overall frustration with an individual about the place where he lives. Dealing with such transportation problem even if it personal or on a city level usually takes numerous steps. And that’s where CTRM Authority comes in, and that’s the reason behind founding this authority.
According to Biz Journals, expert at CTRM authority is working very hard especially Mike Heiligenstein, who is one of the experts who is working behind the success of CTRMA. Their target is to come up with the groundbreaking idea and then plan and properly implement such idea to help the community.
The CTRMA usually managed by 7 Directors, and one of them is renowned and transportation expert, Mike. The Governor of Texas appointed the Chairman, none other than Mike Heiligenstein, and the Commissioners Courts of Williamson and Travis Counties each appointed three members to serve on the CTRM Authority Board.
When CTRMA founded it directly reported to the Governor but then due to some limitation and the problem it was decided to operate under the Chapter 370 of Texas Transportation Code, and it is completely authorized under the state law to properly implement an extensive transportation range systems including airports, roadways, transit services and seaports.
This Authority is also certified to issue revenue bonds to fund projects and also permitted to use user fees including the taxes to repay bonds and fund the operations.
The use of such authority to CTRMA shows that Texas is relying heavily on this authority to take them out from this monstrous issue of Texas. This issue is not just affecting these two Counties but indirectly the growth of Texas.
That’s the whole reason why Texas is relying on CTRMA so much so they can come up with a solution that would be helpful for current as well as generations to come.
