About the Workshop
Transit riders don’t care who provides their transit service. They just want it to be frequent, easily accessible and headed where they want to go. Transit agencies are a little more complicated. Some have elected boards; some have appointed boards. Some only provide local bus service; others operate at a regional scale. Mission, governance and geographical coverage can affect the efficiency and effectiveness of service. Artificial political boundaries between jurisdictions can impede service to transit-dependent riders. Explore the benefits and challenges of common governance models. Hear real-world examples and discover strategies for mitigating the sometimes negative consequences.
