Transit Day at the Capitol tomorrow

KDOT’s Office of Public Transportation will be recognizing public transportation in Kansas on the second floor of the rotunda at the Statehouse in Topeka, Tuesday, March 10 from 8 a.m to noon.
“Public transportation offers the means for thousands of Kansans to access employment opportunities, educational resources and medical services,” said State Public Transportation Manager Josh Powers. “We’re extremely excited about our new, regionally-coordinated transit business model, and this event is a chance for KDOT staff and providers in our program to meet with legislators and other stakeholders and brief them on the state of public transportation in Kansas.”

Participants will include representatives from Topeka Metro, Lawrence Transit, the Flint Hills Area Transportation Agency, Kansas Truck, the American Public Transportation Association, the Community Transportation Association of America, the Kansas University Transportation Center and the Kansas Rural Transit Assistance Program, the Kansas Public Transit Association and the South West Transit Association.

If you have an interest in public transportation and would like to learn more about the event please contact Powers at 785-296-4907 or
