The National Rural Transit Assistance Program (National RTAP) operates under a cooperative agreement between the Federal Transit Administration and the Neponset Valley Transportation Management Association (NVTMA). National RTAP's mission is to address the training and technical assistance needs of rural and tribal transit operators nationwide, and to support state RTAP programs.
National RTAP provides free technical assistance products and services including: training materials (hard-copy and e-learning), webinars, online toolkits, technical briefs, web apps, website hosting, an e-newsletter, best practices articles, a calendar of industry events, a Facebook page, links to partner organizations, and peer networking opportunities. Resource Center specialists also help answer questions or find outside resources regarding rural and tribal transit – available weekdays 9am-5pm ET at 888-589-6821, firstname.lastname@example.org, or via chat. All programs and resources are available at www.nationalrtap.org and are free of charge.
Much of the work of National RTAP is overseen by a Review Board, whose expertise helps guide the development of products and services. The 14-member Board is composed of representatives of state departments of transportation and rural and tribal transit providers. State RTAP Managers are also important partners by using, recommending, and distributing National RTAP's various training and technical assistance products.
