Now in its 18th year, BusCon continues to bring the bus industry together to share challenges, find solutions and improve performance. Attendees will have the opportunity to compare an unprecedented number of motorcoach, transit, shuttle, paratransit, trolley and alternatively-propelled buses (including electric) side-by-side in a 115,000-square foot exhibit hall, where representatives from some of the biggest companies in the industry will be on hand to answer your questions one-on-one.
