The National Rural Transit Assistance Program is a program of the Federal Transit Administration dedicated to creating public & rural transit solutions in America through technical assistance, partner collaboration and FREE training and other transit industry products.
The RTAP website contains a news section, resource catalog and library, webinars, toolkits and more. Scrolling through these pages uncovers free courses, information for RTAP Managers and a Peer Program with calls and peer assistance for fellow transportation providers. Perhaps the greatest resource is a section on driver training.
