In 2020, N-CATT is partnering with state departments of transportation (DOTs) in Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, and New Mexico to host State Technology Summits (“State Summits”) for small-urban, rural, and tribal transit operators in those states. Each State Summit will provide an organized forum for attendees to discuss achievable goals for their systems and learn about promising practices, collaboration strategies and potential solutions. Participants will develop specific, measurable plans to accomplish their technology goals. N-CATT envisions partnerships among transit providers in the same state and with the state department of transportation (DOT).
Due to the uncertain COVID-19 situation, instead of hosting the State Summits as in-person gatherings, each State Summit will take place virtually over the course of a week.
