NCPTA | The Voice of Public Transit in North Carolina
Our Strategic Focus
Education & Training
To lead and support our members and communities through advocacy, education and collaboration to enhance public transportation for all.
Who We Are
The North Carolina Public Transportation Association (NCPTA) is a nationally recognized, award-winning private, non-profit organization. We are celebrating our 40th anniversary in 2023. NCPTA represents 92 public transportation providers. This diverse group of System Members comprises systems ranging from large market urban transit systems operating light rail vehicles and large buses to smaller market rural transit systems operating just a few vans.
What Drives Us
We believe that regardless of its size, every public transportation service is an integral part of our communities' overall transportation infrastructure and is vital to maintaining economic mobility, freedom of travel, and quality of life for citizens and visitors alike.
NCPTA is proud to have 63 strong Business Partners representing educational institutions, governmental agencies, transit industry products, professional service providers, and vehicle manufacturers. These Partners provide the support necessary for our Members to continuously improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the transportation services provided to the public.
NCPTA is governed by a dynamic and diverse 23-member Board of Directors that is elected by the membership. The Board of Directors traditionally meets four times a year. The President, Vice President - Rural, Vice President - Urban, Secretary, and Treasurer are the Officers of the Association and form the Executive Committee, which is responsible for the Association’s administrative and financial affairs. These and other matters are also attended to by the Executive Director.
