Serving the passenger transportation community in New England and the north eastern states since 1900
As transportation modes expanded in the early 1900s and people began to travel, the need for communication increased. On July 18, 1900, an informal transit association,The New England Transit Club, was founded by a trio of transit managers who envisioned an organization that would focus on public transit issues in addition to networking opportunities and social gatherings.
"Hopefully the club will continue to be the people-oriented organization that it has historically been, perhaps growing to be an even greater voice for transit, and a true representative of our national industry centered in New England."
- Charles W. England, NEPTA President, 1978
