Operators in Crisis: Strategies for Hiring and Retaining Transit Workers

RSVP here

The recent from TransitCenter Bus operators in crisis report chronicles how the declining quality of bus driver jobs has made it difficult for agencies to recruit and retain a stable workforce. This has resulted in a national revenue shortfall that affects the ability of agencies to provide regular service – let alone expand service.

Solving the crisis will require a coordinated effort between transit agencies, state governments and the federal government. It will also require innovative approaches. Join TransitCenter for a conversation that explores how multiple levels of government can ensure agencies have the resources and incentives to implement solutions that improve job quality and hiring processes. We’ll also hear from labor and government officials about current campaigns and tactics that can get agencies back on track.
