John Swanson and John Smatlak, two of Interfleet North America’s top Principal Consultants, will be presenting at the forthcoming National Light Rail & Streetcar Conference.

The event is taking place from Sunday 15th to Tuesday 17th November 2015, at the Hyatt Regency, 1300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN.

Now in its 13th year, the expo is co-sponsored by American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and Transportation Research Board (TRB).

The Conference will showcase the results experienced in metropolitan areas that have embraced light rail and streetcars. It also provides an opportunity for industry professionals to explore new ways to plan, design, construct, maintain and operate light rail and streetcar systems.

In their presentation, Swanson and Smatlak will discuss ‘State-of-the-Art Light Rail Alternative Power Supplies’. Their session will examine the progress made during the last decade in the rapidly changing development of alternative power supply for light rail. It will also identify major technological advances and trends likely to impact the industry in the coming decade.
