2013 Summer Meeting & Roadeo

2013 PPTA Roadeo Winners


Each year since 1984, PPTA has hosted a competition for its bus drivers to show off their skills in safely negotiating an obstacle course that features the challenges they face on the streets each day. At the competition, drivers are judged on their appearance, knowledge of safety procedures and winding their way through the 13-point obstacle course and executing maneuvers such as the "Serpentine," "Left Hand Reverse" and "Rear Dual Clearance." The competition is for bus operators who volunteer to participate.
