APTA Delegation to Visit Cuba to Explore Opportunities for Collaboration

APTA Chair Valarie J. McCall invites APTA members to be part of a delegation to Cuba, May 25-29, with Business Member Board of Governors Chair ­Patrick Scully, other APTA members and attendees from partnering associations.

Collaboration is one of McCall’s key initiatives, and this trip will explore such opportunities in Cuba. Participants in the trip, which will originate from Miami, will examine how transportation and infrastructure projects are planned and managed in Cuba, establish contacts and build relationships.

APTA is currently working out costs; initial information from several tour agencies suggests costs will be in the range of $5,000-$7,500 per attendee (all-inclusive from Miami). Attendees will participate in preparing a report to APTA on the potential for long-term opportunities for the U.S. transit industry in Cuba.

APTA members interested in partici­pating are asked to contact Cynthia Owens no later than March 11. Additional details will be provided in the near future.
