Invitation- 2021 Intercity Bus Survey and Roundtable

With the effects of the pandemic on ridership and revenue, this is an important time to discuss what is going on and to participate in the development of a connected bus network. A significant topic is the lack of training resources for stakeholders involved in meeting rural transportation needs with the Section 5311(f) Intercity Bus Program. We need your help in updating materials that address the intercity bus research and technical assistance needs.

 

Alongside the Federal Transit Administration and the Transportation Research Board’s AP055 Rural, Intercity Bus, and Specialized Transportation Committee, National RTAP is working to reach public and private operator s , s tate programs, and other parties interested in supporting national and regional bus networks.

 

There are two ways that you can inform the intercity  bus discussion and future technical assistance:

 

1. We invite you to take the 2021 Intercity Bus Roundtable Survey by February 5, 2021, to help us determine what topics and issues are your priority.

 

2. On March 9, 2021, 2:00-3:30 PM ET we will host an Intercity Bus Roundtable based on the survey responses, followed by a brief AP055 Committee Meeting. Register now to participate in this important discussion.

 

We look forward to connecting. Please contact dcoffice@nationalrtap.org with your questions or to sign up for intercity bus updates.
