The International Bus Roadeo includes competition events for both bus operators and bus mechanics. Awards are given in each practice area and there is an overall grand prize for the transit system with the highest combined score for the bus operator and bus mechanic team.
The International Bus Roadeo takes place the Sunday prior to APTA’s Bus and Paratransit Conference. Roadeo activities begin on the Friday before the conference with an orientation and culminate on Tuesday night at the Roadeo Banquet.
The International Bus Roadeo Committee’s goals are to provide the most equitable competition possible, encourage the highest degree of professionalism in bus operators and mechanics, and build camaraderie among all those who compete. Through sportsmanship and pride of work, the APTA International Bus Roadeo stands as a symbol of the important role bus operators and mechanics play in providing transit’s customers with safe, reliable service.
We look forward to your support and participation in this year’s International Bus Roadeo competition.
Thank you for your interest and participation. Good luck!
