California Transit Association


Beyond the Vehicle

Clean, Green and Sustainable

The Association's May 12, 2010 webinar explored the ways in which transit agencies adapt to evolving community standards of environmental responsibility as pertaining to the design, construction and operation of facilities, including maintenance and fueling stations, administration buildings, and even bus and train stops.

Many thanks go out to the members of the Association's Small Operators Committee, which conceived and formulated the program, and to our presenters: Tom Hootman of RNL Design, Renee Azerbegi of Ambient Energy, Ram Kumar of Kumar Consulting Services, and Ralph Merced, Maintenance Manager at Santa Monica Big Blue Bus.
