About Twin Transit Authority Board
Twin Transit is the public transportation provider for the cities of Centralia and Chehalis in Washington State. As a governmental public transit authority, we offer four fixed routes throughout the community with hourly bus service to many neighborhoods, shopping centers, governmental and medical offices. Each year, nearly 250,000 rides are taken on buses operated by Twin Transit.
Twin Transit is a recognized Public Transportation Benefit Area (PTBA); a special taxing district authorized under RCW 36.57A. Twin Transit is the business name for the Lewis Public Transportation Benefit Area (LPTBA) and is governed by a three-member board. In addition to passenger fare and state and federal grant assistance, the LPTBA collects a .2% local transit sales tax as its primary funding source for transit service. The LPTBA is not a county-wide taxing district, rather the taxing boundaries are limited to the incorporated city limits of both Centralia and Chehalis. Current Board members are:
Chair: Rebecca Staebler
Vice Chair: Gary Stamper
Secretary: Tony Ketchum
