TBAC is comprised of professional business associations representing an array of industries and trades. TBAC plays an important role in advocating for small business owners to have increased access to Metro contracting opportunities.
Meetings feature guest speakers, current and future contracting opportunities, legislation updates and trends in transportation. They also provide small businesses a forum to discuss topics and issues impacting business owners throughout the contracting community.
Meetings are held the first Thursday of every month at 9:30 a.m. at Metro Headquarters, One Gateway Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90012. To view an upcoming TBAC meeting, visit the Calendar of Events.
