We’re excited to head to Santa Fe for our 2021 Summer University Conference – July 18-22, 2021. As is the hallmark of this event, we’ll again feature 3 tracks of 2-day seminars: Community Mobility | Marketing | Transit Law

Plus a 3-Day Maintenance Train-the-Trainer Session and a 1-Day CEOs Forum. See our 1-Page Flyer below for an easy-to-print overview of key conference details.

We’ll also feature additional sessions currently in planning, as well as an outdoor Vehicle & Exhibit Display & Evening Out at the Santa Fe Railyard (sponsored by our Presenting Sponsor – Creative Bus Sales).

In light of the continuing threat of COVID-19, we’ll require our attendees and exhibitors to engage in recommended precautions so that we may gather in-person, including:

  • Wearing masks
  • Social distancing as per state, local and venue requirements
