Transit keeps the entire region moving, and CapMetro strengthens that forward momentum by forming partnerships with local businesses and community leaders.
CapMetro is hosting a one-hour event called Accelerate where you’ll hear from President & CEO Randy Clarke about the economic opportunity that comes from transit investments and how local businesses can earn contracts from CapMetro to help us deliver our service to the community.
You will also hear from special guest Peter Rogoff, CEO of Seattle’s Sound Transit agency and former Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration under President Obama, as he recaps the business opportunities that resulted from a $54 billion bond package in 2016.
At CapMetro, we provide many different ways to work with businesses and we want to make it as easy and efficient as possible. Whether you want to participate in Project Connect procurement opportunities, have a product or service that could be a great fit for the agency or are looking to advertise on one of our buses or rail stations, we want to work with you to make that happen!
Accelerate – Zoom Webinar
Thursday, Aug. 20
10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Project Connect is our long-range transit plan to transform how we get around our region. The multi-billion dollar investment is an network expansion to serve more communities with better service, including a new light rail system, a downtown transit tunnel that could improve mobility everywhere whether you’re on the train or in your car, new MetroRapid routes and vehicles, a transition to a zero-emissions fleet and much more. Not only will this program transform our transit network, but it will have a significant impact on job creation – with 9,700 local jobs created for every $1 billion invested.
