APTA Leaders Address TRB

APTA Chair Nathaniel P. Ford Sr., chief executive officer, Jacksonville (FL) Transportation Authority, outlined his priorities for the year during the Jan. 10 Transportation Research Board Executive Committee meeting in Washington, DC.

Ford described the public transportation industry as evolving at a pace never before seen. He spoke about a shared vision of mobility that benefits all public transit systems and delivers on customers’ expectations in a world of options that grow more interconnected and interdependent every day. He also spoke about the importance of investing in the workforce of the future, the need to leverage big data, the issue of enterprise risk management and the need to positively influence public policy and secure increased federal resources.

APTA President and CEO Paul P. Skoutelas was introduced to the Executive Committee and later in the day made a presentation on the challenges and opportunities facing the public transportation industry.
