The 2007 APTA International Rail Rodeo was held June 2 in conjunction with APTA's Rail Conference in Toronto, Ontario. A total of 20 of North America's rail transit systems participated in this year's competition.
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) won the Rail Transit Team Achievement Award, which is given to the operator and maintainer team that has the highest combined score of all competing rail transit systems.
First place in the Operators Competition — measuring professional skills such as knowledge of train operation, safety regulations, train equipment and track right-of-way rules and procedures — also went to SEPTA.
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority earned first place in the Maintainers Competition, which judges the ability to troubleshoot maintenance problems.
