Annual Service Project

For the past ten plus years, the IBTTA Service Project has been held in conjunction with the Maintenance & Roadway Operations Workshop. IBTTA members organize this community volunteer project with a local organization in the city where the Workshop is being held. In 2020 IBTTA is headed to Louisville, KY, and we'll post details as soon as we know about our project.

In the meantime, mark the date of July 12, 2020 and make a plan to join us.  Information about the 2020 project will be posted on the Maintenance & Roadway Operations Workshop page.
