From: Jacksonville Transportation Authority
Subject: Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center at LaVilla (JRTC)
Invitation to Participate in Pre-Opening Simulations
Date: March 2, 2020
The Jacksonville Transportation Authority will officially open the JRTC at LaVilla on Monday, March 30, 2020. We are excited to enter a new era of mobility options within the region.
Before we open to the public, we are staging (rain or shine) planned simulations/training exercises to ensure that the JTA is fully prepared to address operational and customer scenarios.
To that end, we are inviting key community customers to join with JTA employees and participate in simulations:
Date: Sunday, March 8, 2020
Time: 12:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.
Check-In: Kings Avenue Parking Garage
1201 Kings Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32207
*Free parking and accessible via Routes 27, 107 (First Coast Flyer Blue Line)
Check-in and complete training simulation release form (see attached)
Board buses or Skyway to the simulation exercises at JRTC at LaVilla
Customers will be paired with JTA Employees (who will have scenario instructions). It’s your chance to get a preview of the JRTC at LaVilla, ride public transit (maybe for the first, but hopefully not the last time) and meet JTA’s finest Operations team and Employee Ambassadors.
Please register to participate before or by close of business on Friday, March 6, 2020. Send your name (and any questions about the exercise) with your community affiliation, i.e., Urban CPAC, Big Brothers Big Sisters of NEFL, to Kimberly Morrison at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope that at least 10 members of each organization will register. Our goal is to practice with at least 100 “customers!” Thank you for your consideration. We’ll see you at the JRTC at LaVilla!
Your Friends at the JTA!
