Discussing How Local Agencies Put Transit to Work in Main Street America

Reconnecting America Policy Associate Sasha Forbes attended the Community Transportation Association Expo in Baltimore in May in order to discuss Reconnecting America's report, "Putting Transit to Work in Main Street America: How Smaller Cities and Rural Places Are Using Transit and Mobility Investments to Strengthen Their Economies and Communities." While Forbes was at the conference, she interviewed people active in providing transportation in smaller cities and rural areas.

The individuals interviewed represent the cities profiled in the "Putting Transit to Work in Main Street America" report. Each interview complements the case study in the report, offering more insight on the transit agency and/or city and its approach to providing transportation options for residents and increasing overall economic benefits.
