Putting Transit to a Vote

In most U.S. cities, the future of public transportation succeeds or fails in the hands of voters. Despite broad public support for new transit investments, organized and well-financed opposition is flexing its muscle across the nation, using sophisticated and increasingly effective tactics to defeat pro-transit referenda.

In this session, veterans of some of the nation’s highest-profile transit ballot fights will share their real-world insights for constructing effective transit plans, community coalitions, and campaign strategies to win at the ballot box.

Session Format: Presentations, Moderated Discussion, & Audience Q&A
