    The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Bus Industry Summit was held October 18-19, 2000, in Washington, DC. The Summit offered an opportunity for representatives from the transit industry, including transit providers, vehicle manufacturers, consultants, and government officials--to come together and participate in a forum to openly discuss critical issues affecting the North American transit bus industry. The summit sessions focused on specific issue areas: procurement planning and information exchnage; vehcile standardization; and new technology in the procurement process. Each session is presented separately and includes--speaker notes, industry perspectives on the issue area, and session highlights and a questions and discussion section. The final summary session entitled Where Do We Go From Here focused on follow-up actions to address critical issues discussed. This report also includes the Speaker biographies and a list of Bus Summit 2000 Attendees. The summit identified the areas of vehicle procurement and standardization as recurring concerns challenging all segments of the industry. The ideas, concerns, and proposed solutions exchanged at the summit and documented in this proceedings report, will help FTA develop and execute more effective programs, policies and technical assistance.
