The agenda includes speakers and presenters who are leaders in the fields of bus and rail operational safety, training, research, and safety management.
Who should attend: transit agency chief safety officers and directors, bus and rail operational safety staff, APTA business members (including safety engineering, software, and technology firms), state safety oversight staff, and federal and state partners (including but not limited to FTA, FRA, NTSB, TSA and others).
