Testimonials

Lisa Todd

This was my first time attending...I found it to be an excellent networking event. I appreciated the one-on-one time with various vendors and suppliers as well as their brief group presentations...highly recommend this event to transit operators.

-Lisa Todd, Procurement Coordinator, Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission

Great opportunity to meet with vendors and other operators to discuss trends and latest technologies. The event was very informative!

-Rudy Long, Fleet Administration Supervisor, RTC of Southern Nevada

Attending TBX was very beneficial to our agency. As a small operator, it is often difficult to get time with suppliers to learn and build relationships. TBX made that possible!

-Martin Bean, CAO, Bow Valley Regional Transit Services Commission

This was a unique experience where I felt vendors were interested in transit operators wants, instead of just trying to sell their product

-Leslie Pedrosa, Operations Director, Valley Regional Transit

Candace Moore

“Great networking opportunity, as well as insight to new technologies that are available with current and potential future suppliers.”

-Candace Moore, Manager of Fleet Services, Ann Arbor Transit Authority, Ann Arbor, MI

TBX was a great opportunity to get quality time with vendors and to hear about all the latest industry developments...participants from across the country in all different aspects of transit who were able to bring their experience and knowledge.

-Martin Barna, Director of Planning, Alexandria Transit Company (DASH)

Gary Blazinsky

The Transit Bus Exchange was an outstanding event where the one-on-one vendor time was informative and productive...the opportunity to build long term business relationships.

-Gary Blazinsky, Administrator, Harford Transit LINK - Harford County Government

TBX was a rare opportunity to laser-point focus our attention as an industry on new and old mobility issues while collaborating with industry partners who have solutions ready for market.

-Jon Nouchi, Deputy Director, City and County of Honolulu Transportation Services

This event is the best use of your time. The structure of the event makes sure you meet the vendors that matter to you. I hope I can come again.

-Dave Frasier, Director of Procurement and Capital Projects, Blue Water Area Transit

John Andoh

“The event was excellent, I had an opportunity to meet with vendors that can give us the necessary equipment and tools so that we can be successful at our transit system.”

-John Andoh, County Transit Director, Dutchess County Public Transit, Poughkeepsie, NY

Michael Reid

As a new maintenance manager, I found it very valuable meeting suppliers and networking with others.

-Michael Reid, Maintenance Manager, St Cloud Metropolitan Transit Commission

Marie Parker

“TBX was a fantastic opportunity to spend one-one-one time with vendors. Unlike large conferences, one can forget who they spoke to because the time spent is in passing. The time talking face to face is invaluable and allows for real connections."

-Marie Parker, General Manager, GoRaleigh, Raleigh, NC

Ted Ross

“Very well put together and never a boring moment. Great host and food, too.”

-Ted Ross, Operations Manager, Connect Transit, Texas City, TX

Keith Moody

“In the one-on-one sessions & presentations you meet with vendors that you wouldn’t have stopped at their booths during a tradeshow, and they end up being vendors that can help with things you wouldn't have known otherwise. What a great experience!"

-Keith Moody, General Manager, Clemson Area Transit (CATbus), Clemson, SC

Debbie Maxwell

“Great experience, the networking was awesome, and the information received was welcome and relevant! The event was well organized with a friendly staff."

-Debbie Maxwell, Assistant Director, Treasure Valley Transit, Nampa, ID

Great event, networking, shared experience and vendor opportunities all in one place in a short time.
