Come to Sacramento this November 2-4, 2021 as the California Transit Association and Sacramento Regional Transit District host the 56th Annual Fall Conference & Expo, presented by Proterra. This year's theme is Embracing Change: New Era. New Vision.

This continues to be the West Coast’s most influential transit event of the year, bringing together diverse public transit professionals for action, education, collaboration, and networking.


We will be among the first to experience the $180 million renovation and expansion of the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center with its expanded exhibit hall, new ballroom, additional meeting rooms, and a new outdoor plaza.


As the state's foremost public transit gathering for agencies of all sizes, the California Transit Association conferences showcase leading experts to help elevate public transit service delivery throughout California.

At the 56th Annual Fall Conference & Expo, public transit professionals will learn and connect. Program offerings will follow the conference theme, Embracing Change: New Era. New Visionand include sessions covering a wide range of topics such as Fiscal, Planning, Policy & Compliance; Maintenance; Management & Leadership; Marketing & Communications; Operations; and more.

As always, there will be a full and fast-moving program filled with solution-driven breakout sessions and keynote addresses from top transportation leaders. We’ll also have a show-stopping Expo Hall featuring the latest trends, cutting-edge technologies, and new products driving the future of transit services.
