One in a series of events on the SPUR Regional Strategy.

In Germany, Verkehrsverbund agencies create a seamless transportation experience for riders. In large regions with multiple transit operators, the Verkehrsverbund system unifies the fare policies and coordinates timetables, even providing integrated trip planning and other rider-facing material. Come learn from German experts how this efficient model works and which aspects might be applicable to our disjointed transit network in the Bay Area. Generously sponsored by Transit Center.
