Universal Transit Farecard Stakeholders Program

The objective of this project is to provide committee facilitators support for the American Public Transportation Associations' (APTA) Universal Transit Farecard Stakeholders Program. This project provides committee facilitators to support APTA's Universal Transit Farecard Stakeholders (UTFS) Program. The facilitators support the four working committees of UTFS by facilitating bi-weekly committee conference calls, meetings, and the development and review of UTFS documents. The facilitators also advise the UTFS task force leadership on issues and assist with the development of presentation materials. The UTFS Program was established to provide guidance to the transit community, defining the business and technical interfaces that arise when transit agencies coordinate separate fare collection systems into regional transportation payments systems. The UTFS program brings together the expertise of the private sector and the needs of public transportation agencies in an industry forum.
