Highlights of Bus Conference Schedule

The APTA Bus & Paratransit Conference, May 3-6 in Fort Worth, TX, is only six weeks away. Here are a few more highlights from the conference schedule.

All conference attendees are invited to observe the May 3 International Bus Roadeo competition, where operators and mechanics from bus systems across North America showcase their skills in safe driving and vehicle maintenance. Tickets, which can be purchased in advance, are required for the International Bus Roadeo Awards Banquet on May 5, when the winners are recognized by their peers. The conference also includes educational sessions specifically targeted to roadeo competitors.

The sixth annual Walk and Roll Wellness Event will convene the afternoon of May 5. APTA joins Easter Seals Project ACTION and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority for an outdoor tour open to walkers and users of mobility aids.

Also, the APTA Mid-Manager Magnification Program has announced that a three-hour seminar, “Daily Decisions, Lifetime Impact: Leadership Development for Mid-Managers,” will be presented on the Sunday afternoons of both the APTA Bus & Paratransit Conference and the APTA Rail Conference in Salt Lake City. This program, limited to 25 attendees, considers the art of leadership and how leaders develop an effective leadership paradigm.

To register for the seminar, contact Kamille Turner. On-site registration will be based on availability.
