Transit Academy

Communication is key to a successful partnership. And we'd like to build on that relationship by inviting you to be a part of the METRO Transit Academy. The Transit Academy will explore the complex linkages between transit, funding, economic development and sustainability through seven interactive sessions. By joining the academy, you'll help us improve the dialogue between METRO and the community, allowing us to continue building the world-class transit system our region deserves.

What is the METRO Transit Academy?
METRO Transit Academy is a transit education program for emerging community leaders. The purpose of the Transit Academy is to enhance awareness about METRO, create partnerships with the community and to develop transit advocacy in the Houston region.

A key component of the program is that participants will take their new knowledge and put it to use by designing individual action plans that they will implement in their community.
