This page is designed to help transit audiences understand the workforce development programs developed by our regional partner agencies. The examples listed below range from frontline worker development resources and executive programs to strategies for overall employee retainment. These resources are provided both as a sample of the opportunities available to transit workers and as model programs for agencies attempting to develop their own training and development initiatives. The valuable local and regional programs detailed in the links below demonstrate our industry-wide commitment to developing the transportation workforce. Contact information is provided for each of the programs listed.

If your agency has a model training program not listed on our site, please contact Program Manager for Educational Services, Karen Donald, to let us know more. APTA members can click any of the links below for additional details and contact information.
