Is the largest labor organization representing transit workers in the United States and Canada. Founded in 1892, the ATU today is comprised of over 170,000 members in 270 local unions spread across 46 states and nine provinces.


The Union is guided by a triennial convention at which delegates chosen by locals meet to debate and direct the future of the Union.

The International Vice Presidents serve on the Union’s General Executive Board.


The ATU is comprised of bus, van, subway, and light rail operators, clerks, baggage handlers and maintenance employees in urban transit, over-the-road and school bus industries, as well as paramedical personnel, ambulance operators, clerical personnel, and municipal workers.


The ATU can be found in most major cities of the United States and Canada.
