Policy & Procedure Library
Have you heard? CASTA is developing a searchable online catalog of policies and procedures from agencies around the state. The online database will be secured with login in credentials assigned by CASTA so will only be accessed by other agencies in Colorado like yourself.

Help us strengthen this resource by sending us policies and procedures from your agencies! Please send files directly to Joey Parks at!

Join a CASTA Committee This Fall!
Throughout each calendar year, CASTA facilitates the meeting of different micro groups within public transit that serve to support each other, network, find solutions to challenges faced daily and more. Don't worry- meetings are typically held at the two conferences or by phone and do not require extensive preparation or follow-up. 

At the upcoming fall conference, all committees will meet and all are welcome to join. Visit our website for descriptions of each committee and to find the right fit for you!
