Register Now for Fare Collection Workshop
APTA reminds fare collection professionals that they still have time to register for the 2009 Fare Collection Workshop, March 16-18 in Houston. This workshop provides everything from basic training to setting fare policy to industry-wide best practices for small and large transit systems alike.
This event is designed with something for everyone involved in the fare collection process: from revenue managers to internal auditors and procurement officers, but also consultants, system integrators, bankcard providers, mobile technology providers and government representatives.
Program highlights include 10 technical sessions on topics such as fare evasion, fare management partnerships, bankcard processing, fare policy, and currency processing; three half-day training seminars; two networking events, including a Texas-style buffet and performance by Keith Urban, courtesy of ACS and LCL Advisors; two technical tours; and one product showcase.
Registration information is available online or by contacting Bill Baum.
