The North Carolina Public Transportation Association (NCPTA) is a private, non-profit organization that was incorporated in January 1983. It is the voice for public transit in North Carolina with a focus on education, advocacy & partnerships.

NCPTA represents 90 public transportation providers. This diverse group of System Members comprises large market urban transit systems operating light rail vehicles and large buses to the smaller market rural transit systems operating just a few vans.

We believe, regardless of size, the public transportation service provided is an integral part of the overall transportation infrastructure in those communities served is vital to maintaining the economic mobility, freedom of travel, and quality of life for the citizens and visitors alike.

The Association is also proud to have 53 strong business partners representing educational institutions, governmental agencies, local and state elected officials, transit industry product and professional service providers, and vehicle manufacturers.

These Associate members provide the support necessary for the System Members to continuously improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the transportation services provided to the public.
