(Center Identification Number: 415-13)
Under contract with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) was asked to research and assess the future of the transit maintenance technician workforce. The main scope of this project focuses on this question: “Where are the future transit maintenance technicians coming from?” Will transit agencies be able to attract and retain the number of technicians necessary to maintain their vehicles in the coming years? Unfortunately, these questions do not have a simple answer. There are many factors that contribute to the ongoing dilemma of recruiting and keeping transit maintenance technicians.
