2019 Education Series

SRTC just wrapped up the 2019 Education Series which brought in guest speakers and presentations from transportation experts from around the region and the country. This series offered learning opportunities for SRTC’s Board of Directors, members of our Transportation Technical Committee and Transportation Advisory Committee, other area transportation professionals and civic leaders and members of the public. The Education Series was aimed at:

  • Providing SRTC Board and committee members information on which to base policy decisions,
  • Provide stakeholders and members of the public insight into decisions made in transportation planning,
  • Providing information on technology and trends that could influence how the area transportation system continues to develop,
  • Raising awareness of SRTC in general, including its services and partnership opportunities.

Stay tuned for information about the 2020 Education Series.
