APTA Standards of Business Practice (PDF)
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.
