National RTAP Transit Manager Peer Roundtable

Please join us for an informal discussion of issues of interest to managers at rural and tribal transit agencies. We plan to have a volunteer to kick off discussion on each topic, but we encourage everyone to participate and share questions, information, and tips with your peers.

Potential topics include:

  • Strategies for dealing with driver shortages
  • Advocating the benefits of transit to funders for local match
  • Outreach strategies to underrepresented groups
  • Software procurement and knowing what to include in an RFP
  • Challenges coordinating with other agencies, such as not getting paid the fully allocated cost of social services trips, despite transportation funding available for those programs
  • Push for EVs in areas where the infrastructure and maintenance resources to support it are not there
  • Catalytic converter thefts
  • Adapting to increases or decreases in service demand due to telehealth, COVID, online shopping, the "silver tsunami," inflation, etc.

Note: This roundtable is only for management at rural and tribal transit agencies, including Transit Managers, Executive Directors, Operations Managers, Mobility Managers, etc.
