Only employees of organizations that are APTA members are eligible to apply. Each APTA member organization may only submit ONE candidate.
- The intended audience is individuals who are relatively new to the public transportation industry, with approximately 3-5 years of industry work experience including 1-3 years of project, program, or staff management.
- Those who can demonstrate a strong interest in the public transportation industry, can identify key mid- career goals, and can speak to ways in which they see themselves giving back to the industry.
- Emerging professionals who recently transitioned into public transportation are also encouraged to apply.
ELP is meant as a predecessor to the Eno Transit Mid Manager Accelerate program and the Leadership APTA Program. If you have 6 or more years of transit experience AND 3 or more years of experience managing people, projects or tasks, please consider applying to the Eno Transit Mid-Level Managers Accelerate program.
The exception may be frontline employees who have 6 or more years of transit experience, but are new to management or administration. These individuals who have 1-3 years of experience managing people, projects, or tasks are candidates for ELP.
