Board & Staff

BEST is a broad coalition of community leaders and organizations. We include the Eugene and Springfield chambers of commerce and other business leaders, the University of Oregon and Lane Community College, students, environmental and multi-modal transportation advocates, social service organizations, and neighborhood leaders. On our boards are five previous members of the LTD Board of Directors and a former chair of the Oregon House Committee on Transportation and Economic Development. We believe that better transit is good for the economy, the well being of people, and the environment—for our quality of life!
