Monday, May 20- Tuesday, May 21



For the sixth time, CTAA will be hosting the National Tribal Transit Conference, in conjunction with the Community Transportation EXPO. Native Americans face many unique mobility challenges in accessing jobs, health care, shopping, education and other essential services. From a handful of tribal transit programs, over the past twenty years, dozens of tribes have built transportation services to meet these needs and challenges. At this Conference, you will hear some of those tribal transit success stories, and learn how to build a sustainable transit program yourself.

Background: Transit services can play a key role in promoting economic empowerment and self-sufficiency for tribal members. Transit programs provide critical linkages to services, programs and opportunities that are often, distant scattered and inaccessible for many tribal members. The National Tribal Transit Conference brings together tribal transit managers, planners, tribal council members, as well as state and Federal officials, to discuss how transit services can play a key role in helping Native Americans address their mobility barriers. At the Conference, you will learn how to identify transit needs among tribal members and the kinds of transit services that can address these needs. You will also hear about what works, and what wows in tribal transit, as well as some success stories from some ongoing tribal transit programs across the U.S. To help secure the future of tribal transit, the conference will include a visioning exercise to help formulate policy and funding recommendations and agendas.

Objectives: During this two-day national conference, you’ll learn about:

  • An historic perspective of tribal transit.
  • The basics of tribal transit services.
  • Planning and building a tribal transit program.
  • Funding sources to support tribal transit programs, including FTA’s Tribal Transit Program.
  • Successful tribal transit programs.

Cost: $75 for CTAA members, $150 for non CTAA members.


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.
