Overview

This workshop will introduce two new sustainability tools and familiarize attendees with their use. Participants will leave the session feeling confident interacting with the tools and ready to apply the tools within their transit agencies.

PART 1: Meet the Sustainability Routemap: Level Up Your Sustainability Program - 1:45 - 3:30 p.m.  
What does your sustainability program need to succeed? Performance measures, buy-in from leadership and staff, a solid committee structure; or, all that and more? The brand new Sustainability Routemap, a product of the Transit Cooperative Research Program, is an interactive tool that will help you chart your course to fully integrate sustainability into your agency. The tool will be publicly released later this fall. Come download a sneak peek of the tool on your laptop and learn how to use it!

PART 2: Meet the S+ROI Calculator: Evaluate Sustainability Benefits the Easy Way - 3:45 -  5:15 p.m.
Have you ever struggled to quantify the positive impacts of your projects or your transit service on the environment, social equity, or cost savings. The brand new S+ROI Calculator, a product of the Transit Cooperative Research Program, will guide you through simple calculations to help you estimate and describe those benefits. The tool will be publicly released later this fall. Come download a sneak peek of the tool on your laptop and learn how to use it!
