Our Chapter

Welcome to Central Florida Chapter!

WTS is an international organization of both women and men with the mission of advancing women and advancing transportation. Joining the WTS Central Florida (WTSCFL) Chapter is your opportunity to help turn the glass ceiling into a ladder of success for women in the transportation industry. Our programs, educational events, and networking activities are to affect positive change in our community.  In this unique time of social distancing, we are using virtual opportunities, reaching out to other Florida chapters, and uniting with partner organizations to provide valuable online resources and content.

Our upcoming events include:
