Transit Initiatives and Communities Conferences
2017 Transit Initiatives and Communities Conference
May 21-23, 2017 | Seattle, WA
The Transit Initiatives and Communities Conference is the only national conference exclusively devoted to understanding transportation ballot measures and providing concrete advice on how to win. Join us in Seattle to learn what makes a successful campaign. Come hear first-hand stories and strategies from campaigns across the country.
In 2017, the conference heads to Seattle, Washington, a city that enjoys a strong history of local investment in public transportation. Last November, Seattle voters passed another sweeping proposal that will allow the local transit agency, Sound Transit, to continue to expand and enhance their network.
For over a decade, transit has enjoyed an average success rate of 71 percent at the ballot box. Join advocates, transit professionals, and campaign leaders to advance local initiatives and learn how to win.
