October 13th, 2017 – This week’s American Public Transportation Association trade show in Atlanta, Georgia undoubtedly drew thousands of attendees and vendors. Specialty Vehicles received some unexpected special guests at their booth: United States Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao and Deputy Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration K. Jane Williams.
Wednesday morning, during the last few hours of the trade show, Secretary Chao and Deputy Administrator Williams, along with their press and associates, met with Nancy Munoz, CEO of Specialty Vehicles, and walked through the Spirit of America Trolley, which was displayed in the Specialty Vehicles’ booth for the APTA EXPO.
“We were honored to have Secretary Chao and Deputy Administrator Williams visit our booth at APTA and be able to show them our new Low Floor Trolley. Both ladies were impressed with the authentic theming and workmanship throughout.” Munoz said of her time speaking with Secretary Chao and Deputy Administrator Williams. “They congratulated us on being a long time certified woman owned business and a long time supplier of quality specialty vehicles to the transit industry.”
Specialty Vehicles is a family operated, woman owned business specializing in trolleys, trams and people movers for over 35 years. The company has recently partnered with ARBOC Specialty Vehicles to offer the new Low Floor Spirit of America Trolley.
