Statement of Purpose
The Transportation Learning Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving public transportation by committed investment at the national and local levels in frontline technical workers. We facilitate, lead and support activities that benefit all stakeholders in public transportation, through:
• Labor-management partnerships that create high-quality workforce training programs leading to high-performance organizations based in collaborations that support employee voice, engagement and commitment;
• Cutting-edge research and evaluation of human capital investment and its outcomes in public transportation;
• National training standards created through joint labor-management industry consortia that improve organizational performance, advance workers’ skills, knowledge and abilities and ensure safe, efficient and well-maintained public transportation systems that drive and serve high consumer demand for public transport options;
• Career ladder programs that create opportunities for incumbent workers to advance through training and education;
• Career pathways into public transportation jobs that provide living wages and benefits, with an emphasis on access to those jobs and continuing education and training for young people and men and women from disadvantaged populations served by public transportation;
• Greener work processes that create more sustainable communities.
