Time: 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Transit agencies have traditionally had to rely on county public works departments or the State Highway Administration to provide transit-supportive infrastructure such as bus stop improvements, sidewalk extensions, and pedestrian crosswalks. While these improvements are important to transit agencies and passengers, they tend to be a lower priority for public works departments strained to meet local needs for roadway maintenance.  With the federal transportation policy framework now oriented firmly towards equity, there are many opportunities for transit agencies to access funds for transit-supportive infrastructure in partnership with public works agencies.

Length:  90 minutes

LOTS Comprehensive Review Preparation Training:

It is Comprehensive Review time.  As a recipient of federal funds, the Office of Local Transit Support must monitor and access 9 compliance areas every 3-5 years for subrecipient, AKA, the LOTS. Are you ready?

This training will provide you with the information, tools, and training to help your comprehensive review go smoothly.  We will cover the 9 areas of compliance that will be reviewed. We will discuss areas that have been findings in the past and ways you can make updates now and in the future.  We will guide you thru the process in the desk review, pre-meeting preparation work, the review, and post review follow-up.

You will be confident and ready when it is your turn!!!
