Driving Excellence in Public Transportation


Join NCPTASystem Members

System Members are defined as North Carolina municipalities, counties, transit/transportation authorities, nonprofit transit/transportation agencies, and private agencies, which operate or regulate a public or human service transportation system.

System Members are a powerful component of the Association.  As a System Member, there is the opportunity to serve on the NCPTA Board of Directors and Association committees and thus help shape NCPTA’s future and the future of public transportation in North Carolina.  Areas of involvement include planning, design, operations, maintenance, safety, training, technology, marketing, legislative and regulatory matters, and much more. System Members also have the opportunity to share in and benefit from the collective resources of the Association including the annual training conference and their collaboration with the Associate Members, as well as the Association’s never-ending public transportation advocacy efforts.

The period of membership for System Members is from July 1st through June 30th of the following year.  The annual dues for a System Member are based upon the system’s annual operating expense as reported to the NCDOT Public Transportation Division.  Please open FY 18 System Dues and then return to join our thriving organization today!

The NCPTA Associate Members are also a powerful component of the Association and they are provided the same opportunity and benefit as are System Members.  As the providers of products and services, Associate Members are uniquely positioned in designing and developing the future of public transportation.  Whether it be the overall planning and design or the type of vehicle that is best for a particular service, or the information and technology used by both those who provide and use a particular service, Associate Members are always assisting the System Members in their service to the public.

The period of membership for Associate Members is one year from the date of joining.  The annual dues for an Associate Member is only $300.00.  Join our thriving organization today!
