As a public organization, STA needs to be completely transparent. This means website visitors need to have easy access to projects, meetings, agendas, planning, funding, commuter services, and news.
Accessibility often naturally flows from good design. This means that the STA website was designed to deliver a great experience for all its visitors, whether or not they have a disability. We make sure the website is visually compliant and also technically compliant.
