 International Programs

Welcome to APTA's International Programs!

APTA's International Programs was created to help you learn about opportunities designed to enhance your competitive edge and be actively involved in the global public transportation marketplace. APTA has an extensive international public transportation network supported by international partnerships, as well as ongoing collaborations with the U.S. Government agencies, located both domestically and abroad, with the sole objective to advance U.S. exports.

Whether you are interested in exporting a product, expanding your business abroad, or simply learning about public transportation in regions outside of North America, APTA's International Program is here to help!

APTA International Programs - At a Glance

  • Study Missions
    APTA organizes missions where our members are able to explore and learn about public transportation systems around the world.
  • Trade Missions
    The majority of the world's consumers are outside of the United States. APTA conducts trade missions overseas to countries interested in doing business with the U.S. public transportation industry.
  • Virtual Trade Missions
    APTA's Virtual Trade Missions (VTM) are much more affordable alternatives to Trade Missions...absolutely free! Conducted in webinar format, APTA members can listen to presentations on hard projects going on in a particular country that they may be interested in doing business.
