Meeting local needs for training, technical assistance, and research in transportation

What We Do

The mission of the Kansas Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) is to improve the mobility of all rural Kansans through quality training and technical assistance to rural and specialized transit providers.

Kansas RTAP has offered services since 1987. We have a variety of services to Kansas rural and specialized transit agencies including a quarterly newsletter, regular training, video and publication lending library and technical assistance.

Kansas RTAP is funded by our partners at the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). RTAP services are offered in each state, with a national resource center for RTAP training materials housed at National RTAP.
