Human traffickers exploit legitimate systems within multiple business sectors for their own profits. Traffickers are using resources within the transportation sector to move their victims. Transportation is also a way out for survivors. Knowing the Red Flag indicators, understanding what human trafficking is, who is involved and how to report are keys to transit becoming a part of the solution. This presentation will demonstrate ways our industry can make fundamental shifts to prevent, detect, and disrupt human trafficking.

Future-Proofing Your Agency through Performance Management
May 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION & INFORMATION

 

Transportation is continuously evolving and becoming more dependent on evidence-based decision-making. The way engineers and planners demonstrate accountability is through implementation of effective, practical, and specific performance measures. We step back from our data swamps and dashboards to reconsider best practices in performance management and how agencies can make the most of their situation, regardless of data, resources, or limitations. This webinar will discuss how to improve performance management efforts, with examples from other sectors and experiences among peer agencies (Iowa DOT and Texas DOT).

Engaging Youth to Choose Car-Free Mobility
May 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

 

OVERVIEW

Today’s youth are tomorrow’s riders, bikers, walkers, voters, and transportation planners. As more transit agencies begin to offer free fare passes to public middle and high school students, it is important to have good marketing strategy in place to encourage transit usage so they don’t miss out on the potential to affect behavior change, Thus, transit agencies need to develop age-appropriate messaging strategies and tactics that promote youth non-car mobility. This webinar will present results from a NITC research project that sought to create and evaluate communication messaging that fosters more positive attitudes, intentions, and behaviors related to transit and other non-car transportation options among Portland youth.

KEY LEARNING OUTCOMES

Understand the non-car mobility-related attitudes, intentions, and behaviors of high school and middle school students in various metropolitan areas in Oregon; Identify communication channels and settings that could be most effective with youth in regards to transportation system information and promotion; Study the data to learn how several existing communication strategy themes promoting non-car mobility were perceived by Oregon youth.
