Transit Maps – Display and Contest

Monday a.m. – Wednesday a.m.
 
The Sustainability and Multimodal Planning Workshop has an added feature this year – a presentation and contest featuring transit system maps from transit agencies in North America. 
 
Workshop presenters and attendees are encouraged to submit paper copies of system maps from their agencies, which will be mounted and displayed at the workshop in Minneapolis. All workshop attendees are encouraged to visit the display during the workshop, evaluate and critique the maps, and vote for their favorites.
 
The winners will be announced at the workshop on Wednesday and the agency with the best map will receive the Stephen Parry Award. The last time this exercise was a part of the workshop was in 2013 when the Valley Transportation Agency map from Santa Clara County in California was selected as the best map. 
 
**DUE TO CAPACITY CONSTRAINTS, WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING ANY ADDITIONAL MAPS. Thanks for your interest and participation!**
 
To Display: Presenters and attendees interested in participating should mail two copies of their system map to:
                    Cyndi Harper, Metro Transit Service Development, 560 6th Ave N, Minneapolis, MN 55411

Sunday, August 6

A Multimodal Tour

10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Full – this tour is at capacity. The Sunday and Wednesday afternoon technical tours are still available.

Prior to the start of the APTA Sustainability & Multimodal Operations Planning Conference, maximize your training and travel dollars by joining us first for a Multimodal Tour (MMT) in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The Twin Cities region is more connected than ever, and improvements in the regional transit network have had a profound effect, creating communities that are more equitable, economically competitive and sustainable. The MMT marks the traditional start of the annual workshop, offering the unique experience of seeing passenger transportation in action from the passengers' perspective.

The Multimodal Tour of the Twin Cities offers the opportunity to sample the diversity of the transit network in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Host agency staff from Metro Transit will take us from downtown to south Minneapolis, across the Mississippi River to the capital city of St. Paul, and conclude with a visit to one of the area’s premier taprooms at Surly Brewery. We will have local experts on hand to cover key development opportunities and answer questions about operating practices and projects. New this year is an optional bike portion of the tour using Nice Ride, our regional bikeshare program! There are two options for the morning - via bike or transit - and then the groups will join together over lunch for the afternoon itinerary. Those participating in the bike tour will be asked to pay $35 for the bike and helmet rental. Cash only, please.

This Multimodal Tour is conducted by Michael Mechtenberg from Metro Transit. Participation was limited to 40 people and advance registration was required. THE TOUR IS FULL; tour registration is closed. Participants should arrange travel to arrive in Minneapolis on Saturday. Contact Michael at michael.mechtenberg@metrotransit.org (612-349-7793) to arrange for bike rental (if necessary) and any other questions.

Great Lakes Promenade, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

Sustainability & Transit-Oriented Development Tours

1 - 4 p.m.

These two tours will feature the sustainability elements and transit-oriented developments along two Light Rail lines and an Arterial Bus Rapid Transit line. Both tours will have the same route, going in different directions, with slightly different emphasis from the tour guides. The tours will meet in the lobby of the Hyatt hotel at 1 p.m., then walk to the Nicollet Mall station to catch the LRT to U.S. Bank Stadium.
 
The TOD Tour will head east on the Green Line, through the University of Minnesota campuses on both sides of the Mississippi River. (The Green Line heads east to Downtown St. Paul, connecting the two downtowns, the University of Minnesota, four professional sports venues (soon to be five) and has been a catalyst for innovative development at almost all the stations along the way.) The group will transfer to the A Line at Snelling Station near the future Major League Soccer Stadium. (Running from Roseville North of Snelling to a connection from the Green Line to the Blue Line in Southeast Minneapolis, the new A-Line is exceeding ridership expectations, hitting a million rides in early 2017.) From the A Line, the tour will transfer to the Blue Line at the 46th Street Station. The Blue Line section will focus on the continuing transformation of the station areas. Both developers and Metro Transit have increased the community and sustainability of this corridor that connects the Mall of America, MSP International Airport, strong Minneapolis neighborhoods, and Downtown Minneapolis.

The Sustainability Tour will head south on the Blue Line from US Bank Stadium to 46th Street, transfer to the A Line there, and then to the Green Line at Snelling Station. Both tours will have TOD and Sustainability handouts.
 
Both tours are expected to take 2.5 hours, ending at the hotel. The TOD tour has the option of taking a bus from Lake Street east to the Midtown Global Market and then bus back to the hotel. The Sustainability tour has the option of taking the Green Line east from Snelling to Union Depot in Downtown St. Paul.
 
The TOD Tour will be led by Lucy Galbraith, Metro Transit’s TOD Director, and the Sustainability Tour will be led by Jeff Freeman, Senior Project Coordinator for Sustainability for Metro Transit.
 
NOTE: Please contact Michael Greif at michael.greif@metrotransit.org to RSVP for the TOD Tour and Jeff Freeman at jeff.freeman@metrotransit.org to RSVP for the Sustainability Tour. And, be sure to reconfirm for participation at the APTA registration desk no later than one-half hour before the start of the tours.

Interagency Service Coordination

10:15 - 11:45 a.m.
Great Lakes B, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

Often there are multiple service providers in the same region, and we have to get along with each other. Our customers don’t care about politics or city/county boundaries; they just want to be able to ride anywhere in the region easily and conveniently. Tell us about how your agency cooperates with other providers in places where services co-exist, such as shared transit centers and major regional destinations. How do you coordinate service so that customers can find information in one place and don’t need multiple fare tools? In areas with space constraints, how do you determine who operates where and when?

Interactive Session on Scheduling

1:30 - 3:30 p.m.
Great Lakes B, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

A good scheduler must balance multiple factors, including those related to operator and customer needs and desires. Computerized scheduling software programs simplify the scheduler’s task but do not necessarily teach him/her about alternate ways to achieve the same goal. How were you trained as a scheduler? How do you train the coming generation of schedulers? How do you weave the “art” of scheduling into the necessary technical expertise?\

Completing the Trip Sustainably

2 - 3:30 p.m.
Great Lakes C, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

As the oft-said phrase goes, "every transit rider is a pedestrian" at some point in their travel journey. With increased interest in bicycling in American society, more transit riders are also becoming bicyclists at some point in their journey. Finding ways to improve the experience of pedestrians and bicyclists in transit not only provides opportunities to increase ridership by increasing transit accessibility, but helps reduce regional VMTs by facilitating non-automotive transportation choices.

External Sustainable Business Practices

2 - 3:30 p.m.
Lake Harriet, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

When pursuing sustainability in business practices, agencies not only look to their own internal operations, but those that riders interact with, both visually and tactically, during their journey. Incorporating sustainability into business practices like these involves the examination of long-term practices that establish new ways of conducting business, from the sustainable construction and maintenance of infrastructure to green procurement.

Asking the Right Questions When Planning a New Service for a Specific Market

3:45 - 5:15 p.m.
Great Lakes B, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

You are planning a new service for a specific market, such as service to a new neighborhood, new express service from a suburb to downtown, new service to serve a sports venue, special senior service, etc. The new service could be one of a thousand different concepts, but what are the right questions that should be asked when planning the service so it is successful once it begins operation. What needs to be done to avoid having a service “that can’t miss” becoming an expensive flop once it starts?

Internal Sustainable Business Practices

3:45 - 5:15 p.m.
Lake Calhoun, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

Greening one’s practices is not always easy, as it often requires changes in corporate culture, a learning curve to those unfamiliar with sustainability, and time to learn new technologies and facilities. It can be well-worth the investment, though, as the process provides opportunities to not only demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, but be good community stewards and reductions in operating expenses.

Networking Breakfast/Sustainability Transit Jeopardy!

7 - 8 a.m.
Great Lakes B, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

This session is like a live Jeopardy game, although teams compete instead of single participants.Learn some very useful and interesting facts about sustainability issues and transit operations while enjoying breakfast. To acknowledge the two distinct groups present at this workshop - questions on both topics are present in the Jeopardy categories. To compete you will have to reach across the aisle to build a team with very smart transit people and some knowledgeable sustainability folks. Sounds like transit agencies of the future. Of course to win you have to be lucky or crafty - or both. A valuable prize (OK - not really!) will be awarded to the winning team.

Community Engagement and Public Outreach

8 - 9:30 a.m.
Great Lakes B, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

Although related, public outreach and community engagement are not synonyms. Public outreach is focused on a specific project for a defined period of time to receive feedback about a particular initiative. Community engagement is more long-term, building the relationships with stakeholders and community-based organizations that will form a strong foundation for public outreach. What elements and strategies have your agency or consulting firm used to build and maintain relationships with neighborhoods and groups, and to get useful feedback from communities that can assist transit planning and operations? Share triumphs (and failures, which are just as important) of how you have done engagement and outreach that discusses useful strategies and illustrates lessons earned so we can all continue to improve.

How Does Data Inform Planners?

9:45 - 11:45 a.m.
Great Lakes B, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

Most transit planners are awash in data. APC information, on-time performance information, farebox reports on numbers and type of fare instruments being used, long-range planning projections, bus performance reliability, and the giant NTD database. How does a single planner or a transit planning group decide which data is the most relevant, and which is the best way to use it as a tool in the service planning process? How has this issue evolved during the past decade, and where is it going in the next decade? Does data play a more important role in “big picture” thinking and analysis, or is it better to be used for “fine tuning” service?

Public Transportation Resiliency

9:45 - 11:45 a.m.
Lake Harriet, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

With the threat of increased extreme weather events and sea level rise, public transportation infrastructure is becoming more and more vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The industry must adapt and become more resilient to remain viable and effective. Hear from these speakers to learn about different tools that help identify climate-related threats, organizational thinking around the issues, and specific technologies to implement adaptation and resiliency projects.

Doing a Lot with Less - Most Bang for the Buck

1:45 - 3:30 p.m.
Great Lakes B, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

Transit agencies are always trying to do more with less. When there is only so much low hanging fruit to be picked, what do transit agencies do to get more accomplished – while spending a small amount of money? What techniques and experiences are available to provide more service hours, expand service into new areas, repurpose or repackage existing service to reach new markets, or achieve other cost neutral of low cost actions? These actions should have a large positive impact to passengers, or internal agency practices, without having a large impact on the bottom line.

Current State of Public Transit Funding Options for Electric Vehicles and Charging Systems

8:30 - 9:45 a.m.
Lake Minnetonka, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

With 2017 comes the beginning of a new presidential administration. Since the federal government is responsible for a large portion of transit bus funding in the U.S., any change can potentially impact the stability of funding for future transportation needs. The good news for public transit is that the 2014 FAST Act provides significant annual funding for transportation programs through 2020. The first part of this session will explore funding options for BEBs to help introduce this new technology into your fleet. The second part of the session will talk about the Volkswagen Settlement. States will receive almost $3 billion that may be used for investment in transit buses, electric vehicle charging stations, and other alternative fuel vehicles. This presentation will discuss opportunities to grow fleets and the electric vehicle market through the Volkswagen Settlement, and explore other EV funding opportunities available to states.

The Real Link Between Planning and Scheduling

8:30 - 9:45 a.m.
Great Lakes B, 4th Floor, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis

Relationships between service planning and scheduling can realize untold benefits. But not all service planners speak "operation," while schedulers may feel that planners are making service decisions without incorporating the realities of day-to-day operations. What are the best approaches to enhance the relationship between planning and scheduling? What goals should transit planners and schedulers have for these relationships, and what should each party bring to the table?

Regulations for Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles
California’s ambitious sustainability goals aim to support charging infrastructure for 1.5 million electric vehicles by 2020. As electric vehicle ownership increases in California and nationwide, public transit agencies seek to provide charging infrastructure to those who drive electric vehicles to public transit facilities.The Americans with Disabilities Act requires all programs and services offered by a state or local government to be accessible to individuals with disabilities, but the federal accessibility standards do not address specific accessibility requirements for electric vehicle charging. As a leader in sustainability and accessibility, California has developed and adopted the first regulatory requirements in the nation for accessibility to electric vehicle charging stations. Come learn about California’s requirements and how these requirements can be applied to electric vehicle charging stations in transit facilities nationwide.
