Transit Career Ladders Training Program


training program

We are proud to announce BART was selected as one of 19 out of the 50 competing agencies to receive a Ladder of Opportunity Grant from the FTA.

The District has implemented the Transit Career Ladders Training program to promote transportation careers in low-income, unemployed and underemployed communities, and among minorities, veterans and women through participant enrollment in colleges programs to help fill future positions such as Electricians, Transit Vehicle Electronic Technicians (TVET) and Transit Communication Electronic Technicians (TCET).

The project funding for the TCLT Program has been used to help support new transit entrants into the transit industry in the electrical and electronic fields.

TCLT PROGRAM UPDATES

Currently the TCLT program is progressing through its second semester with 103 students.

NEXT STEPS

There are continued and ongoing efforts to explore avenues for external and internal funding for future "on the job training" programs.
