Epilogue to RTA 2017 Tour
We had nearly 100 people on the RTA Tour earlier this week – including more than 75 elected, business, and transportation leaders from our region, as well as dozens of our counterparts from Richmond. We visited the closest bus rapid transit system to the Triangle and gained a tremendous amount of insight for our upcoming implementation of our region’s five approved bus rapid transit lines as well the Durham-Orange light rail and our regional commuter rail corridor. We also learned from Richmond’s efforts to enhance the regional travel experience, whether the mode of transportation is air, car, bicycle, or on foot.

You can view the final tour agenda and attendee list as well as current photos, and download presentation links on the tour webpage. Plus, there was some great conversation on Twitter you can see via #RTATour17.

RSVP deadline is next week for RTA 16th annual meeting
Please sign-up now to attend the 2017 State of Mobility event, RTA’s 16th annual meeting. We will be releasing a new report on the transportation assets in the Triangle market from a regional business perspective. Remember, you have tickets to the luncheon included with your membership, so please use them – RSVP by next Friday either online or by emailing Natalie. Also, we are still accepting event sponsorships; the price is $999 so let me know if you – or a peer company – are interested in showing support for regional mobility.

Thank you for your investment in the RTA which enables our regional business and community leaders to come together to enhance our mobility present and future.

Let’s get moving,


Joe Milazzo II, PE
RTA Executive Director
