Mobility and Access: Launch of the Transit Leadership Summit website  

The Regional Plan Association and the Volvo Research and Education Foundation are pleased to announce the launch of the Transit Leadership Summit website.

The materials represent the culmination of a three-year effort that convened 17 cities to share best practices in transit operations and policy. This effort also led to the development of six white papers on public transit in the areas of value capture, fare policy and technology, climate change, customer service and amenities, first and last leg connections/intermodalism and setting capital investment priorities. 

All of this content (and more) can be accessed on the website through rich interactive displays – all of which can be downloaded.
