How can public transportation agencies respond efficiently and effectively to a pandemic? TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 from 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern that will identify ways to do so. Presenters will discuss the Pandemic Playbook, a practical guide for managing a public transportation agency’s response to a pandemic, concentrating on what needs to be done when and by whom. They will address key questions and decisions to assist agencies in determining their responses to the pandemic and challenges that agencies may face with potential solutions to those challenges. This webinar will provide a summary of effective practices currently used by public transportation agencies, transit agency leaders, and operational personnel.
