Background

The purpose of TCRP Project F-16A was to integrate and build on the best available public transportation and peer-industry workforce research. Specifically, the goal of this project was to offer a compelling analysis of effective tools for public transportation leaders to use to implement state-of-the-art workforce practices that produce better business results while also supporting more effective, integrated organizations that are rewarding places to work. Like a poorly maintained bus, a neglected workforce will lose its ability to function effectively over time, and even possibly fail to carry out
