2:30 - 3:45 p.m.
Plaza Room B, Lobby Level, Hilton Union Square

Learn about current trends in public transportation and expand your governance skills at this new program

Key to the success of public transportation systems is the leadership of their governing boards to set policy, help secure funding, and build community relationships. With ridership and public support on an upward trend, board members are leading by example. In San Francisco, we invite you to explore how to exert your considerable influence in legislative affairs in this critical time for reauthorization.  

This new program is designed exclusively for transit agency board members. Please attend this session to:

• Build the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for effective governance of a transit agency
• Learn more about APTA’s resources available to you
• Navigate the course to APTA leadership – every third APTA chair may be a board member
• Meet your peers from around the country over refreshments
For both newer and tenured transit board members, this session offers resources for excellence in governance. The session will be led by APTA leadership and staff.

GENERAL SESSION: APTA Business Members Present MOVE: America's Transportation Future

8:45 - 10 a.m.
Grand Ballroom B, Grand Ballroom Level, Hilton Union Square

"America has been waiting for a call to think big and act big as we envision our transportation future. Kanter's important book is it." -Deval Patrick, governor of Massachusetts, 2007-2015

company logocompany logoRosabeth Moss Kanter’s latest book, "MOVE: Putting America's Infrastructure Back in the Lead," is a sweeping look across industries and technologies shaping the future of mobility and the leadership required for transformation. Her strategic and practical insights guide leaders of large and small organizations worldwide, through her teaching, writing, and direct consultation to major corporations and governments. The former chief editor of "Harvard Business Review," Professor Kanter has been repeatedly named to lists of the “50 most powerful women in the world” ("Times of London"), and the “50 most influential business thinkers in the world” (Thinkers 50).
 
She is the author or coauthor of 19 books. Her book "The Change Masters" was named one of the most influential business books of the 20th century ("Financial Times"). "SuperCorp: How Vanguard Companies Create Innovation, Profits, Growth, and Social Good," a manifesto for leadership of sustainable enterprises, was named one of the ten best business books of 2009 by Amazon.com.

Professor Kanter holds the Ernest L. Arbuckle Professorship at Harvard Business School, where she specializes in strategy, innovation, and leadership for change. She is also Chair and Director of the Harvard University Advanced Leadership Initiative, an innovation that helps successful leaders at the top of their professions apply their skills to national and global challenges in their next life stage. A collaboration across all of Harvard, the Advanced Leadership Initiative aims to build a new leadership force for the world.
 
See Dr. Kanter's article in the June 26 Passenger Transport Express, “Why Can’t We Move? Solving America’s Infrastructure Problems” and her book in the August 14 Passenger Transport Express.

Plaza Room B, Lobby Level, Hilton Union Square

New tools and partnerships for transit and land-use decisions

company logoBillions of dollars in residential and commercial redevelopment are regenerating the urban core in cities and towns across the country. Communities that are oriented around transit -- through higher biking, walking and transit-use -- are better positioned to leverage these investments, decrease the strain on transportation systems that result from growing populations, and extend a ladder of opportunity for residents.
 
Join speakers to learn how transit agencies, with the right tools, can become better participants in land-use decision making and strengthen the link between public transit and development to create thriving, livable communities.

Imperial Ballroom A, Ballroom Level, Hilton Union Square

What is happening now and what does the future hold for Federal legislation on transportation?

company logoWith surface transportation funding limping along on short term extensions and congressional committees working to develop a long-term authorization bill, what should the public transportation industry expect to see in terms of legislative progress before the end of 2015? Can Congress reach bipartisan agreement to advance solutions to the crisis facing the Highway Trust Fund and Mass Transit Account? Will Congress address these issues through comprehensive tax reform or a grand bargain on the Federal budget? What changes to rail and public transportation programs should the industry expect? Will comprehensive passenger rail and rail safety legislation be moved through Congress this year? Key congressional staff engaged in overseeing public transportation programs will share their views on the outlook for legislative progress.

GENERAL SESSION: USDOT Secretary Anthony Foxx

4:30 - 5:30 p.m.
Grand Ballroom B, Grand Ballroom Level, Hilton Union Square

Join us for an hour with U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx

As U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Foxx leads an agency with more than 55,000 employees and a $70 billion budget that oversees air, maritime, and surface transportation. His primary goal is to ensure that America maintains the safest, most efficient transportation system in the world.
 
Foxx joined the U.S. Department of Transportation after serving as mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, from 2009 to 2013. During that time, he made efficient and innovative transportation investments the centerpiece of Charlotte's job creation and economic recovery efforts. These investments included extending the LYNX light rail system, the largest capital project ever undertaken by the city, which will build new roads, bridges, and transit as well as bicycle and pedestrian facilities; expanding Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, the sixth busiest in the world; working with North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue to accelerate the I-485 outer belt loop using a creative design-build finance approach, the first major project of its kind in North Carolina; and starting the Charlotte Streetcar project.

GENERAL SESSION: Integrated Mobility / Transformative Technology: Positioning Public Transportation in a World of Game-Changing Innovation

8 - 9:15 a.m.
Grand Ballroom B, Grand Ballroom Level, Hilton Union Square

company logo Not since the invention of the automobile has technology brought on such prospects for change. The rise of multiple technology-driven mobility services has presented the traveling public a new array of mobility choices. At the same time, rapid advances in the development of autonomous vehicles and other vehicle technology systems have brought on various new visions of America’s transportation future.

How can these services collectively work in an integrated transportation system? Can new levels of efficiency evolve? Can this combination of mobility options collectively provide the array of choices that allow for car-free lifestyles, to be accompanied by an overall greater reliance on public transportation? How should the public transportation industry lead the change?

Access and mobility are fundamental to the economic and social freedom of Americans. How can the evolving new frontiers in mobility and public transportation assure that the public is served with efficient, equitable, and convenient travel choices?  

Note: Two breakout sessions on this topic are scheduled on Tuesday from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and 2:45 to 4:45 p.m.

Focus on Operations Safety

2:45 - 4:45 p.m.
Imperial Ballroom A, Ballroom Level, Hilton Union Square

How can organizational culture and proposed regulatory changes make a significant difference in reducing operator assaults, accidents, and injuries?

Attend this three-part session oncompany logo

FTA’s SAFETY NPRMs  Hear from Federal Transit Administration leadership about proposed rule-makings related to the safety statutes in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) legislation. You’ll hear the principles that FTA has followed to forge these new rules, where they apply and the expectations that FTA has in implementing them.
 
OPERATOR ASSAULT PREVENTION  Learn more about preventing operator assaults from FTA’S Transit Rail Safety Advisor Committee. The TRACS Working Group 14-01 released its letter and report on July 31, 2015, providing recommendations to Administrator Foxx on transit worker assaults. This report responds to the rising rate of assaults – particularly to bus operators. It identifies best practices and calls for a different distribution of roles and responsibilities between the FTA, labor, and management for the best chances for success in halting this trend. This presentation is a personal perspective of the deliberations of the TRACS working group and how it achieved to consensus on the recommendations.
 
SAFETY CULTURE  Examine the findings in the Transit Cooperative Research Program 2015 Report 174, Improving Safety Culture in Public Transportation, with research team leaders. The presentation will help define safety culture and describe ways that agencies and labor unions can assess and improve it. Key safety culture components will be identified, such as: strong leadership and organizational commitment to safety, employee/union shared ownership and participation, effective safety communication, proactive use of safety data, key indicators, and benchmarking, organizational learning, consistent safety reporting and investigation for prevention, employee recognition, and a high level of organizational trust.

The presentations will draw on effective transit and non-transit safety culture systems and highlight in more detail a Bay Area system’s accident reduction program.

Performance Based Planning & Programming

3 - 4:30 p.m.
Plaza Room A, Lobby Level, Hilton Union Square

An important link to transit asset management and state of good repair

Under MAP-21, Federal Transit Administration grantees must develop a Transit Asset Management Plan, including an asset inventory with condition assessments and an investment prioritization process. Performance based planning and programming (PBPP) involves the application of performance management within the planning ad programming processes of agencies to achieve desired performance outcomes for the multimodal transportation system. Development of long-range transportation plans, federally required Asset Management Plans, and regional and state-level programming documents are all elements of PBPP. This performance-based approach to planning and programming attempts to ensure that transportation decisions are made- both long-term and short-term based on their ability to meet established goals. Hear from key FTA officials on the process and provisions of MAP-21. In addition, hear from practitioners on their regional approaches.

Measuring the Economic Impact of Public Transportation Investment

9:30 - 11 a.m.
Grand Ballroom A, Grand Ballroom Level, Hilton Union Square

What is your system’s economic impact? How does the local market impact your organization?

company logoIt is often challenging to interpret potentially conflicting and inconsistent approaches to measuring economic impact. Unique considerations can make it difficult to generalize transit economic benefits and impacts and relatively few transit agencies or even metropolitan planning organizations can afford to sponsor original economic impact and benefit studies unique to their regions. This session will provide an overview of the four major types of analyses and provide standard measurement practices that you can apply. This session will also offer concrete strategies that may maintain housing affordability once investments in public transportation have been made. Available at http://www.apta.com/resources/statistics/Pages/Surveys.aspx APTA’s report, "Economic Impact of Public Transportation Investment," shows how to measure public transportation’s impact on economic productivity and shows that productivity gains last long after the short-term effects.

Protests and claims may be the best and last chance for a disappointed bidder or contractor to seek equity from a government. On the other hand, protests and claims can impose costly delays and administrative burdens on transit properties.
 
In this interactive session, business executives and transit procurement officials will discuss:
 
• when and how to file protests and claims
• what happens when a government receives a protest or claim
• why most protests are not successful
• addressing concerns before resorting to protests and claims

CLOSING GENERAL SESSION: Public Transportation: A Pathway to Health

11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Grand Ballroom B, Grand Ballroom Level, Hilton Union Square

Improving the nexus between health care and transportation

Your transportation mobility options have a more profound impact on your health than your genetics. Transportation barriers to receiving health care — whether due to long distances, a lack of available transportation, the cost of transportation, or another reason — can cause patients to defer care or miss appointments, ultimately resulting in greater medical costs and a lower quality of life.

Communities across the country are implementing new, innovative strategies to improve mobility options in accessing health care. Attend this session to learn how to lead conversations and initiatives around improving transportation to health care facilities, collaborate with counterparts in the health care industry in your community, and work directly with city and state decision-makers to broaden the number of advocates who care about transportation and health. Learn more about the Federal Transit Administration’s new Rides to Wellness Initiative.
