In its role as the Transportation Development Act fund administrator, the Transportation Agency solicits public input to identify unmet transit needs. An unmet transit need is a public transportation need that the public transportation system is not currently meeting and would be expected to generate sufficient ridership to meet the required 15% farebox recovery ratio, as required by the Transportation Development Act.

Public hearings to collect comments on unmet transit needs are held at a meeting of the Transportation Agency’s Board of Directors and at a meeting of Monterey-Salinas Transit’s Mobility Advisory Committee. The 2020 public hearings were held on:
- February 26, 2020, 9am: Transportation Agency Board of Directors, 1428 Abbott St, Salinas
- March 27, 2020, 1pm: MST Mobility Advisory Committee, 19 Upper Ragsdale Dr, Monterey
