A look back at prior editions

What past attendees say

A first-class event. Extremely well organized – lots of useful information and opportunity to network with fellow users.
The user group is instrumental in supporting progress for the transit industry. As many issues are typical across agencies, learning from others is a great opportunity. I enjoy getting a chance to meet other users and learn about their challenges and how they addressed them.
Great hosting and great opportunity to learn more about the tools available and for the opportunity to meet other transit agencies!
