ODOT staff will present a program overview and answer questions about this new opportunity. The presentation will cover SRTS Infrastructure Program specifics including, timeline, eligibility, proposal selection process, match requirements, and proposal development tips. The target audiences include city, county, tribes, transit agency staff, and interested public school representatives. All workshops are open to the general public.
