Transit Training & Technical Assistance

Welcome to Transit Training & Technical Assistance

The ODOT Office of Transit prides itself on the level and quality of technical service provided to its customers. Technical assistance comes in many forms. ODOT and other transit staff work one on one as mentors to assist with applications and invoices, provide training and workshops, and fund feasibility studies and analyses. In consultation with Ohio’s subrecipient transit agencies, the ODOT Office of Transit commits Ohio's share of Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) funding to technical assistance projects and training provided under the umbrella Ohio Technical Assistance Program (OTAP). Scholarships are also awarded to subrecipient transit agencies to attend state and national meetings and conferences. Please see the categories below for information on requesting and receiving training and technical assistance from ODOT Office of Transit.
