APTA's John Neff: Four Decades of Service to Public Transportation

APTA staff recently cele­brated a milestone in the career of co-worker John Neff, who marked his 40th year of employment with the association in September.

Neff, a senior policy researcher in APTA’s Policy Department, researches, analyzes, and reports research about public transportation and related issues for APTA members and staff and others who look to APTA for data and analysis.

“John Neff’s work provides an invaluable bedrock for APTA’s policy development and for our committees, agency and business members, members of Congress and congressional staff, and the news media,” said APTA President & CEO Michael Melaniphy. “John’s distinguished and long-lived career has contributed to countless innovative initiatives.”

Among Neff’s projects is the annual Public Transportation Fact Book and its many appendices, which he expanded from an annual summary of data to a set of reports that tabulates nearly every piece of information published since the fact book’s inception in 1944.

In addition to many collaborative research projects in which he participates, Neff oversees the Public Transportation Investment Background Data report, which assembles the data investment firms typically ask for before they invest in a public transit agency or manufacturer, and various primers on federal funding programs, including descriptions, legislative histories, and details for each federal funding program over time.

Neff joined the American Transit Association (APTA’s predecessor) after he completed graduate school at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale and following his service in the U.S. Coast Guard.

To access Neff’s work, visit the APTA website and search in Government Affairs & Policy and the Resource Library.

The APTA team celebrates John Neff’s 40-year career with cake and warm wishes.
