APTA Chair McCall Visits MCI and New Flyer

APTA Chair Valarie J. McCall recently visited the manufacturing facilities of New Flyer and Motor Coach Industries (MCI), the country’s largest public transit bus manufacturers, and addressed a joint session of sales executives to discuss her major priorities as chair, including her initiative to enhance collaboration among APTA, business members and transit board members.

McCall also shared her experience in setting transportation policy as a board member of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, and met with New Flyer and MCI executives to discuss strategies for strengthening interactions between public transit systems and vehicle OEMs.

During her visit to each factory, McCall toured production lines to see firsthand the complex process of rolling stock design and manufacturing.
