The coronavirus is transforming the ways in which we think about and interact with public transit. Transit operators are being asked to make sweeping changes while facing a lack of funding. However, the need to campaign for greater investment in transit has not stopped. We simply must find ways to adapt our campaigning strategies while following CDC guidelines.

APTA’s Center for Transportation Excellence is committed to providing campaigns with resources and assistance while navigating this new territory. Below are resources that we have created and compiled from campaign professionals and transit industry experts that we believe can be useful.
