Roadeo Slideshow - Nebraska Transit

Report
2014 Nebraska Association of Transportation Providers
ANNUAL STATEWIDE
DRIVERS TRAINING & ROADEO
NATP ROADEO
The NATP Roadeo is the only state venue to honor and celebrate the
value of rural and community transit operators – the backbone of
Nebraska public transportation. This exciting event draws drivers
from around the state to test their skills, network with other drivers,
learn new skills and celebrate their efforts. All NATP members are
invited to attend the free drivers training and to participate as a
judge or volunteer at the Roadeo. This is an excellent, inexpensive
way to provide training for our Nebraska drivers!
