Community Outreach and Public Engagement

VTA's Community Outreach and Public Engagement (COPE) team is committed to sharing up-to-date project and program information with residents, businesses, stakeholders, and the general public. We engage with the public and welcome participation and feedback on critical transportation initiatives impacting their neighborhoods and lives. ​

We recognize that stakeholders have intimate and unique knowledge about a community’s history, culture, and vision for the future that should be a part of the process in delivering mobility solutions. Our process is a vital part of building better projects that delivers better outcomes for all stakeholders and creates community ownership. ​
