 Sponsored by FPTA, RTAP, FDOT, FACTS and VOTRAN

It’s that time again – roundup your best drivers and technicians and come participate in the 2014 2nd Annual Florida Triple Crown Bus Roadeo on lovely Daytona Beach.  The Florida Triple Crown Roadeo combines the FPTA and RTAP roadeos into a single, colossal weekend honoring all of Florida’s maintenance technicians, paratransit and fixed route operators.

The year’s event is a joint effort of the Florida Public Transportation Association (FPTA), the Florida Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP), the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), and the Florida Association of Coordinated Transit Systems (FACTS), and hosted by Votran.

There will be training opportunities for the participants. Then the bus operator participant’s skills will be tested with a written test and the on-course competition.  The maintenance technicians will face similar challenges with a written test and a series of diagnostic tests.

As always, the event will end with an Awards Banquet that will crown and recognize our champions in the paratransit van and cutaway divisions, the fixed route bus division, and the maintenance technician’s team competition.

The Florida Triple Crown Bus Roadeo will be hosted by Votran at locations adjacent to the Ocean Center, which is directly across from the host hotel – the Hilton Daytona Beach Resort.  The Hilton, an ocean front resort, is located at 100 N. Atlantic Avenue, Daytona Beach, Florida 32118.  Registration, training, pre-meetings, the Friday evening reception and the Saturday awards banquet will be held at the Hilton.

The "2014 Florida Triple Crown Roadeo Guide for Contestants and Judges" is currently being updated and will be available on the Roadeo Guide Tab (at the top of the page) as a pdf file that can be downloaded and printed. 

Similarly, the preliminary 2014 Triple Crown Roadeo Schedule is available by clicking on the final tab at the top of the page.
