About the Webinar

Transit agencies have been struggling to retain and grow ridership since the COVID-19 pandemic. Though numbers have improved in recent months, transit ridership still continues to hover around 20% below historical averages across the country. How can transit agencies win back old and new riders? What does success look like in the new normal? 

Data is now available to help agencies adapt and align to the needs of riders like never before. We can now understand not only where people are traveling, but why they are traveling, who they are, and what mode they are using for their travel activity. With this type of data, we can make meaningful improvements to our transit systems and attune services to meet demand and win prospective riders. 

At this webinar, we shared winning strategies for using data to plan the future of transit. We also discussed Replica’s new Transit Scores tool that shows how transit stops are performing in our communities. Finally, we took a deep dive into how two transit agencies are meeting demand in their area and how they’re servicing historically underserved communities. 
In this webinar we discussed:
  • Best practices for using data to plan the future of transit
  • Success stories in transit recovery and explore how to replicate that success using Replica data
  • How compelling data and insights emphasize the gravity of the transit situation in the U.S., illustrating the decline in ridership and the associated challenges
  • Replica's new Transit Demand Scores

Transit Agency Leaders, City leaders and managers, public policy leaders, state and local government agencies, transportation planners, consulting firms, private companies, mobility companies, real estate leaders, community advocates.
