The Future of Transportation

Wednesday, July 15

12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Throughout the month of July, we will host a two-part series about the future of funding for public transit in San Antonio following the pandemic. Transit and equity issues were exploited by the crisis, considering how parts of the community are reliant on these services due to the workforce industries dominated here. 

Our first event, moderated by Editor and Publisher Robert Rivard, will be a one-on-one conversation with Jeff Arndt, VIA Metropolitan Transit CEO. Together they will discuss how lack of funding for transportation in the economy recovery plan could affect our community. 

Thank you to our Informed Community Partner, VIA Metropolitan Transit.
