Welcome and Registration

Welcome to the 45th Annual Public Transportation Conference, Vendor Expo, Maintenance Forum, and Committee Day!

As we begin to Grow Public Transportation for the Future after the devastating Global COVID-19 Pandemic we hope to bring everyone together, in a safe way, to inspire how we move forward together.
This year’s conference will be held in conjunction with the Maintenace Forum which was moved from March due to the Pandemic. Additionally, because we moved the Conference to October, during WSTA Committee Season, we are going to hold a day of Committee before we start the Conference and Forum.

A big thank you to the team at C-TRAN for being our Host Agency this year. We look forward to the highlights they have to offer. Finally, we also want to say thank you to our Conference partners at WSDOT Public Transportation Division for their work on putting sessions on and organizing the award for the Wall of Fame.

COVID-19 Vaccine Policy:
At the registration desk, you will be asked to complete a Vaccine Attestation form before you are given registration credentials for Conference. If you are not vaccinated or choose not to complete the form, you will be asked to wear a mask at all times and maintain a social distance of 6 ft. Those successfully completing the Vaccine Attestation form will be provided a different colored lanyard to assist compliance with this policy. This standard is outlined in the Governor’s WA Labor & Industries guidelines for workplace practices for those vaccinated or not vaccinated.
