In just a few months, the paradigm for transit has been upended. Agencies and the organizations that support them are adopting radically different operational models to meet essential needs balanced with requirements for physical distancing, sanitation, and tighter budgets. In this webinar, leaders at Los Angeles County Metro and Via will discuss how their organizations are proactively responding to the crisis and setting the stage for the future of transit.
