International transit group slates inaugural North American rail meeting

The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) next month will hold its first international rail forum for North America.

Scheduled to be held Dec. 8-9 at New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority headquarters, the event will bring together North American rail-operating transit agencies for discussions on several industry topics.

The forum's primary objective is to connect North America's transit-rail agencies to the "wealth of experience" available in the international transit community and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and best practices, UITP officials said in a press release.

Transit executives from London, Paris, Toyko and Brussels will be in attendance.
