TFLEx 20th Anniversary - Spring 2019 Workshop


TFLEx 20th Anniversary

Financial Planning in a Changing Transit Environment

Spring 2019 - Las Vegas

Who would have thought in March 1999 that TFLEx would still be going strong in 2019! Celebrate with us (and all five past chairs of TFLEx) at the 20th-anniversary workshop in Las Vegas, Nevada, co-hosted by the Las Vegas Monorail and the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. Along with the main topic of Financial Planning in a Changing Transit Environment, this workshop will include a retrospective of the last 20 years and where the consortium is heading in the future.

On Sunday, April 14, the Business Meeting will be held at the Las Vegas Monorail Convention Center station.

There will be several sessions on Financial Planning, each with a different focus. We will discuss making capital investments that anticipate tomorrow’s transit environment, bonding issues related to capital programming, fuel hedging strategies, and how should agencies address the increasing expectation of a regional approach to mobility¿

And as we have done in recent workshops, we will hear a local update from the co-hosts. At this workshop, we will learn about the Las Vegas Monorail and RTC Las Vegas.

A session on fare collection pricing and a discussion about developing a multi-agency exchange program will also be facilitated.
