SURTC Training and Outreach

Training and outreach continue to be crucial to the transit industry in rural and small urban locations. Often transit providers in the rural regions are unable to participate in national trainings often experienced by their urban counterparts. Small Urban and Rural Transit Center (SURTC) has worked over the past six plus years to offer training to the rural and small urban providers and proposes to continue to do so. Training is needed more now than ever given the changing workforce, additional federal mandates, and the need for providers to do more with fewer resources. SURTC has a robust training program to meet the needs of the transit industry. Many of the trainings were developed at the request of the transit industry. SURTC has worked to adapt the trainings to respond to industry needs and time available. Depending upon the needs of the audience, several of the trainings SURTC developed may be tailored to different time frames ranging from one hour modules to three-day courses.
