This course is intended for transit professionals whose responsibilities include some or all of the following related to the National Transit Database (NTD): reporting, statistical compilation, or other financial duties and activities. This is an introductory level course. The content is geared for people with little or no experience using the NTD reporting system.
The NTD sessions are primarily intended for anyone who is new to NTD Reporting, and who has not previously attended an NTD training session. This two-afternoon course covers all aspects of completing an NTD Report, from the perspective of someone who is unfamiliar with NTD reporting. If your system is planning on reporting as an urban reporter, you should not sign up for this course, as some of the material will not be relevant to you.
