California Transit Association


Spring Legislative Conference

After careful review of the COVID-19 pandemic's impact throughout California, and on our industry specifically, the California Transit Association has determined to cancel its 2020 Spring Legislative Conference scheduled for May 26-27, 2020 in Sacramento.

In light of Governor Newsom’s Executive Order directing all Californians to shelter in place, the latest information from the World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and local governments – and in the interest of the health, safety and well-being of our members, attendees, staff, and sponsors -- the Association believes it is most appropriate to cancel the conference. 

For those signed up for our conference, we will provide a full refund. For your convenience, there is no need to contact our office to submit written cancellation requests. 

Many airlines have already alerted passengers regarding new policies to cancel and refund flights without penalty or receive a credit for flight reservations. You will need to call your airline carrier to speak directly with their team about your reservation.

Please cancel your hotel reservation as soon as possible. You MUST contact your hotel directly and cancel reservations at the Citizen Hotel within 48 hours of your arrival. If you were part of  the Association’s hotel block, contact the Citizen Hotel at 916-447-2700.

Although the Association is cancelling the in-person Spring Legislative Conference, we intend to host webinars and other online offerings in the near future to share vital information. This information will not only include the traditional legislative and budget matters, but will also include information related to the COVID-19 crisis and its impact on transit. Please check our website for additional information as it becomes available. 

These are uncertain times for all of us and the news about COVID-19 is changing daily. Transit agencies have a long history of rising to meet any and all challenges that come their way. Please know, your Association is here to support you and offer whatever resources we can.

Thank you for all you do every day to serve our communities.
