RTA online transit acceleration meeting— 10 days away

RTA will hold a one hour, online-only, “RTA transit acceleration” meeting on Monday, June 17 at 11 am.

The focus of this RTA general membership meeting will be brief updates from several transit partners in Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill-Carrboro related to accelerating BRT and making transit rapid. There will be plenty of time for Q&A from our members, and multiple representatives from your company can attend.

Registration is now open for all RTA members; there is no cost to participate.
