RTAPgo is the rural and tribal transit provider’s straight-talk on peer-tested innovations, trends, and ideas for facing operational challenges, surviving and thriving with grace, grit, and creativity. Unlike the usual webinar or training event, this podcast provides technical assistance directly from the field. For small transit agencies with limited staff and funding, each show is an opportunity to learn from the struggles, successes, and innovations of colleagues who understand the day to day challenges of rural and tribal transit.
Hosted by the National Rural Transit Assistance Program (National RTAP), RTAPgo is a podcast FOR and BY rural and tribal transit staff that allows isolated and hardworking transit professionals to remotely network with and learn from the real-life experience of their peers. With an emphasis on storytelling and interviews, each anecdote provides an example of rule applications, approaches, and ingenuity at small systems, so that listeners don’t have to use their limited time and staff to reinvent the wheel.
