Transit 101

Transit 101 is a biannual event for the purpose of educating new incoming legislators and their staffs about public transit, as well as to update returning legislators on transit priorities.  It was instituted in 2013 as part of the Association’s advocacy strategy to bring public transit to the forefront with state policy makers.

The event is held early during the first year of each new two-year legislative session.  The second rendition of Transit 101 took place March 24, 2015. Association leaders and staff conducted a briefing at the State Capitol that was attended by numerous lawmakers and legislative staff members. View the presentation file used during the 2015 event.
