As we continue our 20th anniversary year, our fall 2019 workshop will be held in Tacoma, Washington, hosted by Pierce Transit.

The main topic for the workshop is A Deep Dive Into Revenues. Among other things, we will discuss:

  • payment trends and technologies
  • fare collection equipment
  • inter-agency agreements
  • fare enforcement
  • low-income fare policies

Staff from Pierce Transit will be showcasing several projects they are working on, including a new mobile ticketing solution, and infrastructure improvements they are doing for electric charging stations.

We will also have our popular Needs and Leads on Monday afternoon and most importantly our Monday night dinner that is usually the highlight of the workshop. More details on that will be coming soon.
