The PACTS Executive Committee on Tuesday heard from more than a dozen new community transportation leaders, who shared their top concerns and solutions for improving transportation in the region. They hope to inspire change and spur a more inclusive decision-making process
The program is part of a new effort to better engage underrepresented communities in planning and decision-making.
A 23-member group comprised of people of color, older adults, people with disabilities, immigrants, and refugees – plus interpreters – gathered weekly this fall for a six-part Community Transportation Leaders training program. Graduates from the training are poised to get involved with local and regional transportation planning and projects.
