The past year has provided unprecedented challenges to all who work within public transit as well​ as those stakeholders that support the industry and the riders whose lives depend on​ ​reliable transportation services.

 

We have been tested in ways that were never envisioned and challenged to be innovative and reactive to continue providing essential services to the thousands that count on us. 

 

As transit operators at every level, we learned so much about our industry, our strengths and ourselves.

 

It is time to take what we learned and move to the future!
