NEW at the 2013 APTA Bus & Paratransit Conference is a day dedicated to bus maintenance and bus technologies. Take advantage of a full day of learning and interaction with your maintenance manager peers and other associated transit professionals. The day will kick off with offsite interactive discussions at IndyGo in the morning. We will then return to the Bus and Paratransit Conference where you will have lunch with your transit peers as you view the latest buses at the annual Bus Display.
