Educational Stream and More

This year’s PTC will have some of the top names in the industry on hand to focus on autonomous vehicles (AVs) and cybersecurity.

No longer at the pilot phase, autonomous shuttles are becoming a viable solution for public transit systems around the nation. PTC’s session will focus on what are some of the best use cases for AVs in public transit, as well as the possibilities for the technology’s growth now that manufacturing of the vehicles will primarily be concentrated here in the U.S.

In the wake of some high-profile cyber-attacks in San Francisco and St. Louis, the cybersecurity session will focus on best practices for ensuring that your agency is both protected and can respond to potential cyber-attacks.

Additional sessions set for PTC include a leadership roundtable hosted by industry stalwart Mark Aesch, president and CEO of TransPro Consulting, and much more, including leadership and recruitment/retention best practices.

Stay tuned for even more announcements about the PTC’s educational program, the shared show floor with GFX, and much more.
