Many Annual Meeting Sessions Showcase In-Depth Learning

Approximately 35 concurrent sessions have been scheduled for APTA’s 2015 Annual Meeting, Oct. 4-7 in San Francisco, on topics ranging from alternate fuels to safety, MAP-21, procurement best practices and transformative technologies.

Concurrent sessions range from one to two hours in length, giving attendees ample opportunities to explore a topic in detail, learn from industry experts and share experiences and insights. Details on a few sessions follow:

FTA staff will conduct a special workshop to discuss rating projects under the new MAP-21 evaluation process as described in the New and Small Starts Evaluation and Rating Process Final Rule and the new Final Interim Policy Guidance for the Capital Investment Grant Program. The workshop will also cover performance planning and environmental provisions as they relate to project development.

“Clean Fuels and Clean Fleets” will examine ways public transit agencies can integrate clean and alternative fuel technologies into their operations.

“Focus on Operations Safety” covers proposed FTA rulemakings related to the safety statutes in MAP-21, prevention of operator assaults and the findings in a recent Transit Cooperative Research Program report.

“What You Don’t Know that You Think You May Know about the APTA Standards Program” showcases the program, its 300-plus published documents and new website.
