History and Overview
The Brazos County Regional Mobility Authority (BCRMA) is an independent governmental agency created in 2019, pursuant to Chapter 370 of the Texas Transportation Code, to improve the transportation network in Brazos County. On November 1, 2018, Brazos County filed a petition requesting authorization from the Texas Transportation Commission (TTC) to form the BCRMA. The TTC issued a Minute Order on May 30, 2019, to authorize creation of the BCRMA, and on December 10, 2019, the resolution creating the RMA was adopted by the Brazos County Commissioner’s Court.
The BCRMA provides the community with another means of addressing safety and congestion. Through community consensus, our vision is to plan, develop, and operate a quality transportation system for people and goods that promotes safety, enhances life and supports economic opportunity throughout Brazos County.
The five-member Board of Directors provides oversight to the BCRMA. The Chairman is appointed by the Governor, and the Brazos County Commissioners Court appoints four additional members to serve on the Board.
The BCRMA is authorized under state law to develop and implement a wide range of transportation projects including roadways, pedestrian/bike facilities, transit systems, and parking facilities. Because the BCRMA can independently generate revenue through various financial resources and innovative financing, transportation projects are less dependent on competing for limited state and federal funding sources.

Board and Staff
The BCRMA Board of Directors is comprised of five local community volunteers who are responsible for setting policies, identifying priority projects, and ensuring the agency is operated in an efficient and effective manner.
The Governor of Texas appoints the Chairman of the Board. The Commissioner’s Court of Brazos County appoints the remainder of the board members whose composition reflects adequate representation for all political subdivisions within Brazos County. Board members serve four-year terms (with the exception of the initial Board), cannot be elected officials, and must reside within the county they represent. The initial BCRMA Board member terms were staggered to create continuity within the Board’s structure.
Board members are active in their community and are not compensated for their service. The BCRMA employs one part-time staff member to provide administrative assistance to the BCRMA and Board.

Encompassing Brazos County, the BCRMA serves not only Brazos County residents, but also out of town visitors and residents of the greater Brazos Valley who come to our area to visit and utilize all that Brazos County has to offer.
Brazos County is situated between the Navasota and Brazos rivers in southeast central Texas. Brazos County was named for the Brazos River which forms its western border. Bryan is the County seat, and College Station is the other major community in the county. Other communities in Brazos County include, Kurten, Millican, and Wixon Valley. Brazos County is located in the heart of the Texas Triangle – approximately 99 miles from Austin, 99 miles from Houston, 165 miles from Dallas, and home to Texas A&M University.
Brazos County is crossed by U.S. Highway 190 and State Highways 6, 21, and 30, as well as the Union Pacific railroad.
