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.

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

“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."

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

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.
