FTA synthesis report providing insights from transit industry andl labor experts discussing frontline worker training needs across the U.S. public transportation industry.

This report synthesizes findings from a two-day gathering of more than two dozen transit industry labor and management representatives who engaged in in-depth discussions on frontline workforce training needs across the U.S.

The purpose of the meeting was to identify immediate, short-term, and long-term training needs for the frontline public transportation workforce in the U.S. and ways to connect apprenticeship and formal training programs to support these needs.

Although there have been many initiatives that have advanced frontline workforce training, there continue to be unmet needs, changing demands, and obstacles in this area.

In preparation for the meeting, the Transportation Learning Center and NTI identified representatives from labor and management who have a strong interest in developing frontline operators and maintainers and initiated invitations to them.
