In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Regional Plan Association’s annual Assembly is going virtual. RPA will be hosting a series of free online panels in May and June addressing the immediate and long-term effects of COVID-19 on the region’s health, economy, and infrastructure. On May 27th, we will be hosting a panel on “Saving Our Region’s Public Transportation Systems and Building for Tomorrow.” Our region’s public transportation systems are in dire operating and financial situations. The COVID-19 crisis has destroyed the ridership and revenue of the agencies while inflicting terrible human suffering and staggering financial losses. Federal funding from the CARES Act helped the agencies remain solvent for the near term, but more needs to be done. This panel will discuss the prospects for additional operational support, how capital projects in the pipeline could help accelerate economic recovery, and which projects should be prioritized.
