Join NADTC on October 14, 2020 at 3:00 pm ET for the first in a series of webinars. We will highlight WexExpress/Cadillac Wexford Transit Authority, a transit system in Michigan. With buses and a volunteer driver program, they provide public transportation to a population of 33,631. Join us to hear how this rural transit system implemented technology and other rider amenities often found only in larger systems.
Learn how they created a roadmap for the future and coordinated to expand service to nights and Saturdays, put bike racks on buses, hired a mobility coordinator, have on-board GPS bus location, mobile ticketing, rider alerts and more!
