 Call for Papers - EXTENSION


Dear (Fare Collection Professional),

APTA’s Fare Collection Workshop has been re-visioned this year as the Revenue Management Summit. The new model is designed to provide a more comprehensive overview of emerging trends in revenue collection, including new ideas to monetize benefits from transit service, intra-agency performance mechanisms, emerging trends, global activity, and best practices.

To that end, we are calling for presentations that speak to this broader theme.  At the 2014 Revenue Management Summit, every presentation will reflect the context of the topic within the broader scope of an agency’s revenue management process, while highlighting the latest technologies or best practices.  The Summit takes place in New Orleans March 16 – 19, 2014.

Sessions are already starting to take shape; however, we are still accepting presentations that will enhance attendees’ appreciation of new technologies and best practices in fare collection, revenue management, and auditing at transit systems in the US and around the globe. 

To respond to this call for presentations, please submit the attached form by January 24, 2014.  Selected speakers will be notified within two weeks of the submittal deadline.

Topics to be addressed in the presentations:

  • Cash Management (collection, processing and security)
  • Shrinkage Control
  • Alternative Payments
  • Merchant/Retail Issues
  • Project Management
  • Role of System Integrator
  • Data Validation
