MPTA is Growing

The Missouri Public Transit Association (MPTA) is growing.  MPTA is proud to report nine new members for the 2018 year.  New members include Ecolane, Kelderman Air Suspensions, ACC Climate Control, Northwest Missouri Ind., Marilyn Cullers, Cheryl Price, Complete Coach Works, Bergstrom, Inc., BYD Motors, Inc., and United States Seating.

Transportation is a key to moving Missouri forward, and MPTA members make a difference by providing more than 62 million rides almost everywhere for everybody every day in Missouri, and they employ thousands in our communities.   Through the work of the staff, board and our members, we are moving the organization to the next level with regards to education, advocacy for transit, and membership
