Dear eNewsletter 

We've survived the Ides of March, 71 days of the Trump Presidency, the 11th week of the Colorado General Assembly, and 11 months since we lost Prince.  March blew in like a lion, and is leaving like a lion, too. But here at CASTA we continue to do what we do best - provide the citizens and visitors of this fair square state the trips necessary for their livelihoods, education, recreation, health, safety, and well-being. This newsletter is packed with information on training, advocacy, success stories and information to connect you with the Colorado transit industry.
