Program

Information. Innovation. Inspiration.

The 54th Annual Fall Conference & Expo program will focus on the trends that are transforming public transit, innovations and pilot programs being conducted by transit agencies around the state, sharing best-practices, and exploring what is working and what is not.

As always, our premier annual event features insightful keynotes, in-depth educational tracks, and opportunities to learn from thought leaders as we cover today’s most pressing transit issues and happenings.

Creating an enhanced learning environment, each educational track will include at least one hands-on, interactive activity focused session where attendees can “learn by doing.” Concurrent sessions will be offered through the following five educational tracks:

  • Fiscal, Planning, Policy & Compliance
  • Maintenance
  • Management & Leadership
  • Marketing & Communications
  • Operations
