APTF Seeks Donations for New ADA Scholarship!  Help Us Meet Our $100,000 Goal!

The American Public Transportation Foundation (APTF) is still accepting contributions for the ADA Accessibility Scholarship 
being established as we commemorate  the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Over $80,000 has been 
pledged toward our goal of raising $100,000 by APTA's Legislative Conference!  Don't miss the opportunity to get in on the 
"ground floor" of this campaign to assist students interested in advancing transit accessibility.  Please visit or 
contact APTA's Pamela Boswell at for more information.
 Thanks in large measure to your great support, we are going to make it to our goal!
Please donate to the American Public Transportation Foundation today!

The American Public Transportation Foundation (APTF) presented scholarships to 20 recipients in Houston, TX as part of the 2014 American Public Transportation Association Annual Meeting & EXPO. This year the APTF and Leadership APTA joined forces and celebrated tomorrow's leaders in a joint ceremony.

This session was exciting as well as engaging for our scholarship winners as they lead discussions and shared their ideas on how to recruit young professionals into the public transportation industry to foster a talented and dedicated workforce.
