More Bus Conference Sessions Set

The schedule is finalized for the APTA International Bus Roadeo, May 13-17, and Bus & Paratransit Conference, May 15-18, in Charlotte, NC.

The roadeo competition begins Sunday morning, May 15, before the conference convenes. Bus operators and mechanics from public transit systems across North America participate in separate competitions, which showcase their skills in safe driving and vehicle maintenance. APTA will recognize winners at the Roadeo Banquet on May 17, and competing teams are invited to participate in specialized educational sessions during the conference.

APTA Chair Valarie J. McCall will host a listening session on her signature initiative, the APTA Task Force on Member Collaboration, on Monday morning, May 16. McCall appointed a task force to identify ways to enhance internal partnerships and collaboration among three key membership groups (public transit agency CEOs, board members and the Business Member Board of Governors) and between APTA and key external organizations with shared interests such as the U.S. Conference of Mayors, National League of Cities and National Association of Regional Councils.

The conference’s educational sessions are organized by eight routes of study: technology; operations and maintenance; safety and security; accessibility and mobility management; planning, finance and sustainability; capital programs; BRT; and workforce development, management and policy.
