SRTC Education Series

SRTC has started an Education Series of speakers and presentations from transportation experts from around the region and the country. This series offers 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 is 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,
  • And raising awareness of SRTC in general, including its services and partnership opportunities.
