Welcome to the 2010 APTA Multimodal Operations Planning Workshop. Whether it be Flex Routing using Paratransit, Lessons Learned from Service Reductions, Improving Transit Station Design with Passenger Simulation Software, or Guiding Transit Service Investment through Performance and Productivity Measures, presentations at this year’s workshop will provide immediate takeaways that you can implement at your agency.
Both seasoned veterans and those new to transit can learn about broad-brush topics such as how Vancouver handled record ridership during the Olympic Winter Games, and more focused topics like how Alexandria, VA restructured underperforming service routes.
You’ll leave with new skills and knowledge of the best practices currently being implemented in the industry. You won’t want to miss this once-a-year opportunity to make new contacts with the best planners and schedulers in the business.
The Multimodal Operations Planning Workshop provides a valuable opportunity to hear about new planning practices and exchange ideas with peers. You are invited through unique sessions like the Open Forum to share your own insights and discuss your agency’s most recent advances and challenges. You will hear how your peers address similar challenges and take away a fresh perspective on how best to manage successful public transit service in the face of serious times.
Presentations (slideshows/PowerPoints) are now available for many of the sessions from the conference.
A Multimodal Tour of the Tri-State Region
A two day tour of the Tri-State region is planned for Saturday, July 24, and Sunday, July 25. The Multimodal Tour of the Tri-State Region will provide transit professionals with a unique passenger’s-eye perspective of how different modal systems function and interact.
There is no charge for the tour other than your fares and meals. Participation each day is limited to 40 people. Sign up for either day or both—or for just part of a day if you’d like.
