Growing the market
ATCO’s national summer conference is the largest gathering of local authority staff responsible for the provision of local authority passenger transport services. It also attracts many transport professionals from the private public transport sector.
This years conference will explore how public transport usage can be increased despite the current financial climate and will provide you with information on current developments and the opportunity to exchange information with other transport professionals.
The Department for Education (DfE) have announced that they are conducting a review of school transport with the aim of providing new guidance to local authorities. The Summer Conference will include an alternative programme on Thursday 16 June which will focus on the review. This session will be conducted with the DfE and will give delegates an opportunity to contribute positively to this important piece of work. We would encourage members, who are particularly engaged in the field of school transport, to attend this part of the conference.
