Projecting who we are and what we stand for
Communicating clearly and effectively is the backbone of successful advocacy. Our brand—from our voice and tone to our look and feel—plays a key role in helping us achieve our goals. Effectively applied, the California Transit Association brand engenders respect, attention, and consideration, setting the foundation for a more effective dialogue about the needs of public transit. We connect riders to destinations, communities to economic progress, Association members to lawmakers, and industry professionals to like-minded industry professionals. We believe public transit is essential and serves as a vital connection to a better quality of life for all. These beliefs guided the creative development of our complete suite of business and marketing materials, including the look of this website.
