The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) has rescheduled its TRANSform Conference & EXPO for Sept. 1-3, 2021 in Anaheim, Calif., at the Anaheim Convention Center. The TRANSform Conference will begin on Aug. 31 and run through Sept. 3.  

“The decision to postpone the event to September was made out of concern for the safety of our attendees, exhibitors and partners, and in response to public health advisories to limit travel and the prohibition of large gatherings,” the association said in a release. “While the pandemic warrants much to be concerned about, there is positive news on the horizon related to a vaccine – which bodes well for our new date.”

APTA EXPO is held once every three years and was last held in Atlanta in 2017. The show was originally scheduled to be held in Anaheim in October 2020 before the pandemic forced its postponement to March 2021 and now to September 2021.

APTA says it will continue to refine its 2021 conference calendar, noting a final version will be available soon.

“We want to thank everyone who has been working tirelessly to ensure a successful event and look forward to welcoming you to Anaheim in September 2021 for APTA’s TRANSform Conference & EXPO,” said the association.
