The North Carolina Public Transportation Association (NCPTA) is a private, non-profit organization that was incorporated in January 1983.

NCPTA represents public transportation providers in all 100 counties. This diverse group of System Members comprises large urban transit systems operating light rail vehicles and large buses to the smallest rural transit systems in North Carolina operating just a few vans.

We believe, regardless of size, the public transportation service provided is an integral part of the overall transportation infrastructure in those communities served is vital to maintaining the economic mobility, freedom of travel, and quality of life for the citizens and visitors alike.

The Association is also proud to have almost 100 Associate Members, including educational institutions, governmental agencies, local and state elected officials, transit industry product and professional service providers, and vehicle manufacturers. These members provide the support necessary for the System Members to continuously improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the transportation services provided to the public.
