DCTA will host a series of open house meetings in September to share major agency projects and initiatives, including: January 2019 service changes, new promotions, fare changes, Program of Projects, grants, FY ’19 budget overview and more. The come-and-go meetings will give the public an opportunity to speak with individual DCTA staff members about the presented topics.
