“The future of our economy depends on safe, effective, reliable public transit. NATA’s members bring ideas that will help pave the way for what tomorrow’s mobility looks like, today,” says Mr Dick Alexander, Transdev US CEO and chair of NATA’s Board.
The alliance also plans to advocate for better government support during the coronavirus pandemic, in the face of diminished passenger numbers and the high exposure to risk faced by employees providing transport services to essential workers during the crisis.
NATA comprises First Transit, Keolis, MV Transit, National Express Transit, RATP Dev and Transdev. Together they represent 154,000 employees, 35% of the total North American public transportation workforce.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on public transit in North America, and NATA companies have worked diligently beside their public transit agency partners to continue to provide necessary mobility during this extraordinary time,” says Mr Paul Comfort, NATA executive director. “Public transportation remains critical to all Americans – it provides mobility options, generates jobs, spurs economic growth, and supports public policies regarding energy use and air quality.”
