The ECO-RAPID TRANSIT is Joint Powers Authority (JPA) comprised of 13 members, representing 12 Southern California cities, and the Bob Hope Airport in the City of Burbank.

The aim of the system is to enhance transportation options for riders in the Southern California region and expand economic growth.
