Thank you to our speakers and participants for making this a great event!



CFTE conducts the biennial Transit Initiatives and Communities Conference to bring together transit agencies, local officials, transportation supporters, advocates, and ballot measure campaign professionals to discuss the latest information on transportation ballot measures. Conference sessions offer insights into recent elections and key trends shaping campaigns. Sessions are interactive and provide extensive case studies. TIC is an excellent opportunity for networking and practical learning.
