SRTS Planning Workshops
The California SRTS Technical Assistance Resource Center (TARC) conducts SRTS Workshops at no cost for low-income schools without existing Caltrans SRTS funding. These workshops are designed to help communities and schools create sound SRTS programs based on their unique community conditions, promising practices, and resource availability and options. Up to two trainings a year are available in each of the four TARC regions.
