Many transit systems have or plan to have exclusion policies that effectively ban violators from using the transit system for a period of time. There is limited information about how these policies are used and their efficacy. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, June 27, 2024 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM Eastern that will discuss ways exclusion policies are implemented and used by transit agencies, the major issues and challenges of the policies, measuring effectiveness, and the impact on crime.
This webinar is based on TCRP Synthesis 173: Transit Exclusion Policies in Public Transportation Systems.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program.
There is no fee to attend this webinar. Registration is required.
A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
