Revolutionizing Public Transit Systems in Rural Communities
Last month, CTAA and Via lead a discussion with two transit leaders on Summit County, Utah and Via’s plans to build a revolutionary new transit network that can serve as a model for creative and innovative rural transportation. Using digital mobility infrastructure — a feat far easier than it sounds — Summit County will soon be home to a new type of transit system that aims to encourage mode shift and reduce congestion in even some of the most car-dependent and rural communities.
The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) and its members believe that mobility is a basic human right. From work and education to life-sustaining health care and human services programs to shopping and visiting with family and friends, mobility directly impacts quality of life.
