Abstract:

There is a demonstrated need for outreach, education, training and technology transfer to public transportation providers, rural transit districts, mobility managers, councils of governments and staff involved in regional human service transit coordination. This project addresses those needs by providing training and technology transfer based on recent research efforts at various institutions to improve regional coordination and transit services. The Regional Coordination Workshop served as the venue to deliver the workshops in themed learning tracks. High priority workshop topics include: partnership development, marketing techniques, public involvement, and information technology applications. The Regional Coordination Workshop was held on July 23 and 24, 2008 at the Omni Austin Hotel at Southpark in Austin, Texas and attended by 172 participants from a variety of agencies and organizations involved in regional human service transit coordination. Regional Coordination Workshop materials and presentations can be found on the Regional Service Planning website (www.regionalserviceplanning.org).
