Efficiency and Effectiveness of Service
March 11-13, 2018
It is time for the 2018 Spring TFLEx Workshop.
The workshop will be in Phoenix, Arizona, on March 11-13. The business meeting will be held on Sunday, March 11, in the afternoon.
The agenda is still being finalized but the main topic will be "Efficiency and Effectiveness of Service", meaning setting service standards, particularly for routes with low ridership. How do you measure efficiency versus effectiveness. How do you get through the ugliness and politics of deciding what service to decrease or cut? We will also be discussing:
1) Federal issues like the FTAs Transit Asset Management program and what effect the new tax law might have on member agencies;
2) how members do their tax projections (i.e. in house versus local universities or other financial adviser);
3) efforts to change employee culture in member agencies; and of course our always popular Needs and Leads.
