2018 TPTA Conference & Expo

This year, TPTA is excited to co-host the 2018 TPTA Annual Conference & Expo with Knoxville Area Transit (KAT).  The event will be held November 6-9 at the Knoxville Convention Center and the Holiday Inn Knoxville Downtown.

This year’s event will include general sessions and workshops focused on current issues facing public transportation and featuring first-rate speakers.  The Expo is a perfect opportunity to see transportation products, technology and services that can help you move your agency forward.  You also don’t want to miss the 2018 State Roadeo Competition.  So register today and don’t miss out on Tennessee’s premiere public transportation event.

If you are a supplier of transportation services, equipment, technology or products, the 2018 TPTA Expo is a great chance to be in front of decision makers in the transportation industry from all across Tennessee.  Visit the Vendor and Sponsor Registration Page to learn how to become a part of this exciting event.

In addition to the State Bus & Van Roadeo and the State Maintenance Roadeo, this year's conference will also feature a new Customer Service Challenge for bus and van operators.  If you are competing in the Roadeo, you can also sign up below to compete in a fun and friendly challenge on Wednesday afternoon.  The driver with the best customer service skills will be announced at the Awards Banquet on Thursday evening.  Show off your other operator skill set and sign up today!
