The ITA, a nine-member board of directors that sets policy and direction for the transit agency, is made up of elected officials who represent the Thurston County Board of Commissioners and the cities of Lacey, Tumwater, Olympia and Yelm, as well as a labor representative and three citizens. There is an opening for one citizen representative to serve a three-year term. The citizen representative must live within the public transportation benefit area.

Members are selected to represent a cross-section of the community and geographical representation from throughout the public transportation benefit area.
