public transportation

The American Public Transportation Association serves as an advocate for the advancement of public transportation programs and initiatives in the United States. Since its founding in 1882, APTA has educated the public about the benefits of public transportation through organized bus, light rail, rapid transit and other programs. It lobbies Congress and local government bodies in favor of public transportation improvements and new developments.

In 2008, APTA will hold its annual convention and EXPO in San Diego.
