CTAA to Hold Mobility Institute

The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) is inviting RPOs, EDDs, and their partners to apply to participate in its Job Access Mobility Institute.  CTAA’s Joblinks Employment Transportation Center is looking to support five communities in designing new and improved on-the-ground transportation services that respond to a key transportation challenge facing job seekers, trainees, and employees in their locale. The Job Access Mobility Institute is a multi-month, team-based research, design, and implementation process in which teams will develop and test a transportation service that solves a key challenge of their constituents. This opportunity will bring together innovative thinkers from the transportation, employment and training, and business sectors to solve their community's unique mobility challenges. Applications are due Friday, August 24.  For more information, contact CTAA Joblinks Director Carolyn Jeskey at and visit the following links:  Overview of the Job Access Mobility Institute and Team Application
