COTA staff returns from federal training

Posted on Mar 11 2014

Staff of the Commonwealth Office of Transit Authority recently returned from the 3rd Training Session of the Federal Transit Administration’s Environmental & Sustainability Management System.
Virginia Tech, under contract with the FTA, was the primary host of the training located at the VTech facility in Roanoke, Va.

En route to Virginia, COTA staff flew to Washington, D.C. to meet with officials of the Community Transportation Association of America to discuss and finalize the technical assistance agreement with CTAA. This is a grant created by the U.S. Department of Agriculture known as the Rural Passenger Transportation Technical Assistance Program.

Administered by CTAA, the program provides technical assistance to small communities of less than 50,000 people. The focus of the program is economic development: helping small and emerging businesses and stimulating economic development through new and improved public transportation. (COTA)
