Bus Operator Survey and Selection
For almost 15 years, APTA’s process for selecting reliable, safe, and customer-oriented bus operators has benefited transit systems nationwide. The Bus Operator Selection System (BOSS) was researched and developed with the firm of EB Jacobs, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and APTA-member transit system CEOs and training directors. The end result – the most reliable source in operator selection today.
