Transit Rider Engagement and Transit Policy Momentum
This project aims to capitalize on the momentum gained in the last few years to create a region in which taking transit enables full access to jobs, education, health care, and other needs that ensure the equitable, thriving community that all residents deserve. That means consistently improving access to economic opportunity, reduced travel times, and an ever-more accessible and growing regional transit system.
