MPTA Education Series: TRANSIT CATALYST FOR COMMUNITY RESPONSE
October 5, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
CTAA Highlights Case Studies of Success During the Pandemic
An unknown foe, unfolding crisis and unprecedented impact. Transit agencies, just like every other element of American life, faced these three challenges in 2020 during the height of the global COVID- 19 pandemic. In order to better understand how agencies served their communities and persevered through the last year and a half, the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) published an analysis of how transit proved to be a catalyst for community response.
Hear from CTAA Executive Director Scott Bogren and Senior Communications, Events, Legislative Specialist Taylor Klocke, and report author Stewart Mader, Founder & Director of Advocacy for VaxTransit, during the latest MPTA Education Series Event on Oct. 5 on how transit deployed their systems to help their communities, first to reduce food insecurity, then to ensure equity in vaccine access on a widespread scale. The report concludes with six recommendations to leverage the new partnerships and flexibility necessitated by the COVID-19 era to durably improve access to opportunity.
Don’t miss the chance to hear the results and discuss opportunities for Missouri providers.
