  4. What are you doing for outreach or marketing? Is anyone doing a Safe to Ride campaign or encouraging new riders?
  5. How are you handling farebox revenue right now?
  6. How are you doing as a leader during these challenging times? What are you doing to take care of yourself and your employees?
  7. Is your agency doing anything regarding the anti-racism movement and protests, etc.? Are you implementing any additional training, peer/support groups, or other changes?
  8. Are your staff still working remotely when possible? Do you see this as a cost savings benefit or are you looking to return to the old normal?
Please register in advance. During registration you can identify which topics you are interested in and suggest additional questions.
The roundtable will be an informal peer discussion and will not be recorded. A summary will be provided to share resources, tips, and lessons learned.
