Madison Club/ Monona Terrace

Thanks to all who participated in the unprecedented Turnout for Transportation event last fall or in the Just Fix It campaign in any way.

You were an integral part of starting the statewide dialogue about the condition of Wisconsin’s infrastructure and its impact on Wisconsin residents and businesses. And you kept the issue in the news.

Now we need to keep the issue of sustainable transportation funding in front of our state elected leaders.

TDA Fly-in to Washington, D.C.

27th Fly-in will be winging back in 2018. This year, TDA will focus a little closer to home.capitol

The TDA Fly-in is the perfect opportunity to bring Wisconsin transportation issues to our national representatives. Virtually every congressional office and both senate offices participate and look forward to this information exchange on key issues with Wisconsin’s transportation stakeholders. The two days in Washington, D.C. literally “fly by”, and participants are back in Wisconsin before they know it. It is a good, quick trip for busy schedules.

General Fly-in information
The fly-in contingent leaves Wisconsin in the morning of the first day. Upon arrival in Washington, D.C., participants attend an afternoon briefing session – typically legislators and experts on the national level bring attendees up-to-date on pressing federal transportation issues. In the evening there is a group reception and dinner, a perfect opportunity for networking. The speakers at the morning session on the second day delve deeper into the issues of concern to Wisconsin’s transportation community. Activities in Washington, D.C. culminate with the ever-popular small group office visits with Wisconsin’s congressional delegation. As a past Fly-in participant commented, “One of the most impressive things about the TDA Fly-in is looking at the attendee listing. It really is a who’s who in Wisconsin transportation.”

2016 TDA Fly-in Issue Papers

 

In 2008, TDA began a new program – “modal weeks”. Each year, TDA will declare a “Transit Week”, “Rail Week”, “Ports Week” and “Aviation Week”. During each of these weeks, TDA will work with relevant stakeholders and the media to highlight for the public the vital role that each particular mode plays in Wisconsin’s transportation system and thus to its economy, safety and quality of life.
