Governance Documents

APTA Standards of Business Practice
APTA is intended as a forum for the public transportation industry, as a whole, to consider, advocate, share information, and reach consensus wherever possible on the issues facing the industry. To effectively accomplish this purpose, members must be free to voice their opinions without threat of disparagement, mockery, or derision.

Diversity Plan
APTA defines diversity as the inclusion of differences and similarities from all categories of members and covers such areas as disability, gender, age, ethnicity, and geographic origin, size of transit property or business member organization, all of which contribute to the fulfillment of APTA's mission.

Strategic Plan for 2010-2014: The First Steps to TransitVision 2050
The 2010-2014 Strategic Plan was developed through an open conversation with the APTA membership from January through October of 2009, which included open brainstorming sessions at APTA events and committee meetings as well as a membership survey and a webinar. The goal was to understand the needs of APTA members over the next five years and how APTA can help them meet those needs.

Business Plan
The Business Plan presents the key ongoing and new activities APTA will carry out to address its five strategic goals.
