ABOUT THE EXPO


Four Riverside County transportation agencies have joined forces with a common goal to increase opportunities for disadvantaged, small and veteran businesses.  Caltrans-District 8, Riverside County Transportation Department (RCTD), The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) and Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) have partnered to increase opportunities for local businesses. The four agencies are committed to support, promote and strengthen the marketability of these businesses with prime contractors and public agencies specifically within Riverside County.  To this end, Caltrans, RCTD, RCTC and RTA invite you to attend the Riverside County Small Business Expo.
