Annual Meeting Educational Sessions Feature Industry Topics, Trends

The 35 educational sessions at the 2016 APTA Annual Meeting, Sept. 11-14 in Los Angeles, feature best-­practice discussions by industry experts on a wide range of topics—safety and security, funding and financing, sustainability, workforce development, ridership and more, offering numerous opportunities for peer-to-peer learning for industry professionals at all levels.

This year, several sessions focus on innovation and updated technologies. Brief summaries follow:

“Transforming Lives and Communities: The Power of Transportation Investment” will bring together leaders from public transit agencies, labor, business, philanthropy and community-based organizations to discuss the role of transportation investment in inspiring long-range growth, access and positive change.

The “Smart Cities: Reimagining Transportation” roundtable session will feature W. Curtis Stitt, president/chief executive officer of the Central Ohio Transit Authority in Columbus, the city selected by DOT as the winner of the Smart City Challenge. Panelists will demonstrate how to integrate intelligent technologies to manage assets, improve quality of life and create new urban transportation that generates jobs and improves neighborhoods.

At “Integrating Innovation into Your Organization,” speakers will share information about the ways they create strategies, business opportunities and new technologies, capabilities, business models and industry structures, leading to overall improvements.
