Welcome to the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged


CTD Vision Summit - Stuart, Florida - May 23, 2022

************************************
CTD Business Meeting - Stuart, Florida - May 24,2022


We are excited to announce that the Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged (CTD) will be hosting a Vision Summit in Stuart, Florida, on Monday, May 23, 2022, from 9:00AM - 3:00PM.

The Commission is pleased to welcome Commissioners Lillian Barrios and Don Elwell, and it is customary that we provide our new board members with an introduction to the Transportation Disadvantaged Program and an orientation of the Coordinated System, prior to their first business meeting. We also recognize that this information would benefit many of our State Agency Advisors, Community Transportation Coordinators (CTCs) and Planning Agencies that have welcomed new members to their teams.  So we are extending this invitation to our partners to attend this event. This information will be shared during the morning segment of the Vision Summit.

In the afternoon part of the Summit, we would like to facilitate a discussion on the major issues impacting the Coordinated System, such as driver shortages, funding challenges, etc. This would be an opportunity for stakeholders to weigh in on these issues and assist the Commission and our partners in exploring strategies to address these challenges in the future. We welcome topic suggestions from partners interested in participating in this discussion at the Vision Summit. The ideas generated during this discussion will assist CTD in identifying training needs and policy topics for our Annual Training Workshop on August 30-31, 2022.

The Summit will be held in-person and precede the Commission Business Meeting on May 24, beginning at 9:00AM. There will be no capability to participate in the Summit virtually. Please follow this link to the agenda for each event.   Both the Vision Summit and Business Meeting – May 23 and May 24 – will be held at the Martin County Board of County Commissioners at 2401 SE Monterey Rd, Stuart, FL 34996.

All members of the public are welcome to attend these events. We strongly encourage those who are in leadership positions within the Coordinated System to participate. For it is you who will help us carry out our vision of growth and excellence in meeting our riders’ needs in the years to come.
