This event provided a level set / awareness of the region’s current multimodal offerings and plans through a series of leadership briefings and transit field visits, along with an understanding about the opportunities that purposeful additional investment can afford our region.

RTA thanks each of our region’s transit partners for their assistance in the planning and execution of the event.
