The Washington Suburban Transit Commission was created in 1965 (Chapter 870, Acts of 1965).

The Commission administers the Washington Suburban Transit District and has powers to develop, on a bi-county basis, a transportation system, including mass transit facilities, for Montgomery and Prince George's counties, Maryland.

Within Montgomery and Prince George's counties, the Commission acts as the financial conduit for funding of mass transportation projects. It coordinates mass transit programs with the two county governments, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, and the Maryland Department of Transportation.

The Commission consists of seven members appointed to three-year terms. Two are chosen by the Montgomery County Executive, and two by the Prince George's County Executive. With Senate advice and consent, the Governor appoints one member from Montgomery County and one from Prince George's County. One member serves ex officio. Annually, the position of chair alternates between Montgomery and Prince George's counties (Code State Government Article, secs. 15-820, 15-821; Transportation Article, sec. 10-205).
