Hickory – Greenway Public Transportation is delighted to offer a free, public seminar as an introduction to public transportation on Tuesday, March 3, from 6:00-7:00 p.m., at Patrick Beaver Memorial Library’s Meeting Room in Hickory.

Entitled “Public Transit 101”, the hour-long course will cover the basics of public transportation operations: fixed and flex routes, van service, funding sources for public transit, para-transit, and transit route planning. A brief history of Greenway Public Transportation will also be presented.

At the end of the seminar, there will be an opportunity for members of the public to discuss the future of transit, locally and more generally.

Class speakers include Greenway Executive Director Camille Sterling and Western Piedmont Council of Governments Transportation Manager Brian Horton.

Greenway Mobility Manager Aaron Kohrs will facilitate the evening open to all people.

Refreshments will be provided. All are welcome to attend.
