A Transit Agenda for the COVID-19 Emergency

October 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

TransitCenter’s new report, “A Transit Agenda for the COVID-19 Emergency,” explores public opinion toward transit during the pandemic and makes policy recommendations to protect transit workers and riders while improving service. Riders want assurance their trips will be safe and reliable. By acting with both care and urgency, transit agencies and city governments can give riders what they’re seeking and safeguard transit during and after the emergency.

To implement these changes, policy makers must pay attention to riders and collaborate with the transit workforce. Join TransitCenter for a conversation with labor representatives, transit agency leaders, and advocates about how cities can meet this moment and put transit on sure footing as cities endure COVID-19 and recover from it.

Panelists:
Mark Henry, Amalgamated Transit Local #1056
Laurel Paget-Seekins, MBTA
Laura Chu Wiens, Pittsburghers for Public Transit

Chris Van Eyken, TransitCenter
