The safe and efficient operation of transit rail systems is highly dependent on reliable traction power to allow train operations. Traction power maintenance has been identified by APTA and unions representing transit workers as a craft with a shortage of practitioners. In response to the need for traction power maintenance training, the Transportation Learning Center has partnered with APTA, transit agencies and unions representing transit workers to develop joint labor-management training guidelines and recommended practices for this craft.
