Meet the OPTA Board

Started in 1999, the Ontario Transportation Expo conference and trade show is a joint event organized by the Ontario Bus Consortium, which is three partnering associations – the Ontario Motor Coach Association (OMCA), the Ontario Public Transit Association (OPTA) and the School Bus Ontario (SBO). This event is a combination of buyers and sellers from the entire bus transportation industry, not found anywhere else in Canada. For more information visit www.ote.ca – hope to see you at OTE.

Government Relations & ADVOCACY

While advocacy primarily benefits transit system members and is the main “raison d’être” for OPTA, it is important that Business members understand the key public policy issues impacting your customers. Their success at Queen’s Park equates to your success. Supporting the association which represents your customers makes good business sense. At the same time, Business Members themselves can benefit from OPTA’s lobbying activity, as evidenced by the success we’ve had with lobbying for Gas Tax funding and other regulatory reforms.
