Transit Marketing Matters Twitter Chat National RTAP is hosting a #TransitMarketingMatters Twitter Chat, moderated by National RTAP Review Board Member and Heart of Iowa Regional Transit Authority (HIRTA) Executive Director Julia Castillo. Public Transit riders are not alike, so different means must be used for marketing. Whether it is Facebook, Twitter or a paper flyer, all marketing should appeal to the key value components of Public Transit. This Twitter Chat will explore ideas on using the right marketing platform for your agency to help increase brand awareness, tell your transit story and improve customer service and community support.  January 30, 2018 2:00-3:00 PM ET RSVP
