Welcome to The Ontario Public Transit Association
The Ontario Public Transit Association (OPTA) is the Provincial forum for public transportation, representing the views of the membership to governments and other agencies. OPTA contributes to regulatory, policy issues and programs prior to their implementation and has strong relationships with provincial government ministries and associations that affect the delivery of transit and public transportation services.
OPTA provides a wide networking base for transit systems, community transportation partners, suppliers, government agencies, transportation experts and other industry stakeholders. The association also provides members with a Quarterly e-Newsletter; OTE, the annual conference and trade show; Regional Managers meetings; issue-focused update bulletins and networking meetings, as well as other services. Our training programs include the award- winning Professional Instructor in Driver Education program, and our customer service accessibility training programs: SkilForm and SkilForm Taxi.
