The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) is sponsoring webinars on transportation for Veterans.

The Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative (VTCLI), funded and managed by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), supports efforts by local governments and transit agencies to implement technologies—ranging from “smart phone” applications to real-time transit bus locator information—that make it easier for veterans and others to access and schedule rides on available buses, vans, taxis and other transportation systems. The unemployment rate for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans is more than 12 percent, more than four percentage points above the national average.

For information on registering, please contact Chris Zeilinger, Assistant Director, Community Transportation Association of America, 202-250-4108, or email zeilinger@ctaa.org. Details for accessing each webinar will be sent this week. Attendance is first-come, first-served, with no advance registration necessary. Webinars will be recorded.
