During the week of November 12-15 2019, Mississippi Public Transit Association held their 43rd Annual Conference at Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino in Robinsonville, MS.  This year’s theme was “Transportation and Workforce: Connecting the Dots” and focused on the challenges that transportation and human services agencies face with the changing workforce and as the adding of new technology increases, in order to enhance the rider experience using community transportation.

QRyde/HBSS team spoke with many providers in the area to see how the system has been working for them and also with new clients that are interested in using QRyde. Our Founder and CEO, Himanshu Bhatnagr, also had the opportunity to speak to the group at our Vendor-Sponsored Statewide IT Update/Coordination Breakfast on Thursday morning.

Later on in the day on Thursday, during the Annual Banquet, Himanshu, Vikash, and John Johnson (MPTA President) pulled the names of the winner of our drawing for a 32 inch TV – Natchez Transit.  Next year, the 44th Annual MPTA Conference will be held in Vicksburg, MS – we’re looking forward to seeing everyone next year.
