Transit Connections 2013

The RTC in partnership with the City of Reno, the City of Sparks, the County of Washoe and its sponsors hosted the inaugural Transit Connections 2013 community summit on December 6th. Transit Connections 2013 was an important and significant first step to raise awareness and begin the dialogue about the way public transit enriches our community and to hear new strategies and ideas to make it stronger and more beneficial for the region. 2014 will be the year transit issues are further discussed with our community with the help of a Blue Ribbon Committee that will be appointed by the RTC Board in early 2014. For your information, here are the links to the presentations made during the summit.
