CMT names winners of Fred Epstein Scholarship to the upcoming Transit Midwest Conference

midwestconferencelogoCongratulations to Holly Kreienkamp,  Amy Wasowicz, and Ann Anderson – recipients of the Fred Epstein Scholarship for the upcoming Transit Midwest Conference.

CMT offered several scholarships for registration for this upcoming conference in Kansas City, August 14-16. As one of the founders of Citizens for Modern Transit (CMT) in 1985, Fred Epstein, whose passions included transit and access to public transportation, ensured the St. Louis region had an articulate, active voice for public transit with Citizens for Modern Transit.

Fred was a true public transit visionary and advocate who dedicated years to the transit discussion, ensuring in part through his leadership St. Louis MetroLink came to fruition.

“As Mr. Fred Epstein’s wife Sara once said, Fred had a way of taking a good idea, finding a way of carrying it through, and doing it.  That is exactly what I set out to do when I recently started up a new transit company to provide transportation services to people with disabilities,” said Holly Kreienkamp on why attending the conference was important to her.

The four-state Transit Midwest/State Public Transit Partnership Conference is right around the corner this summer August 14-16 in Kansas City, MO at the Westin at Crown Center. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear from transit industry experts on the FAST ACT and mobility on demand, check out the new Kansas City Streetcar and learn about national trends in transit from AASHTO, APTA, and CTAA.

The planning committee has organized a quality program to educate and inform participants of issues critical to the transit industry. There will be sessions for rural, small urban and urban systems, mobility managers, health care professionals, transit enthusiasts, direct service employees, state DOT’s, FTA and many more.

Early Bird Registration is $185 through May 31, 2016. Regular conference rate is $285 after May 31.
