Foregoing Membership Dues

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on transit. The exchange of information afforded by TFLEx membership is more valuable than ever. We, at TFLEx, want to encourage continued participation, while at the same time recognizing the financial strain, we are all under. With that in mind, the TFLEx leadership has decided to waive next year’s membership dues to all members in good standing.

I look forward to working through this time together.
