Investment in workforce development and human capital issues is critcal to the continuing success of the public transportation industry and a priority for the American Public Transportation Association (APTA). Attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce able to deliver high-quality performance that effectively and efficiently responds to the evolving needs of public transportation customers throughout North America is key to our industry's success. In recognition of these challenges, Dr. Beverly A. Scott, 2008-09 APTA Chair, established APTA's Workforce Development Blue Ribbon Panel.
