The APTA Elevators & Escalators Technical Forum is dedicated to the advancement of technical design, maintenance and operation of elevators and escalators for transit systems.
Forum members include representatives from transit agencies, manufacturers, distributors, consultants and contractors. Forum members meet at twice a year in coordination with conferences of APTA and meetings of associated organizations such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the National Fire Protection Association.
The Forum is also continuing to develop and update guidelines for the design, operation and maintenance of elevators and escalators as part of APTA’s Standards Development Program.
APTA Committees and Subcommittees are now part of APTAconnect, APTA’s members-only, secure online community space specifically designed to connect you to your peers, colleagues, and friends.
Our online communities are aligned with APTA’s highly valued committees. If you’re a member of a committee, you’re automatically a member of its corresponding online community.
Committee membership is open to all employees of APTA members in good standing, and participation in one or more committees/subcommittees is encouraged and welcomed.
Except for those committees listed as “by appointment only,” you may join a committee or subcommittee by submitting the Committee Interest Form. Upon receipt of your request, you will be added to the committee/subcommittee and contacted by the staff advisor.
