Transit Workforce

Investing in the future of the transit workforce and expanding career opportunities for local students.

Transit employees are essential workers that move New York. As experienced team members retire and the public sector recruits new talent, investing in the future of the transit workforce is critical to our city.

To support the transit workforce and expand career opportunities for local students, the Transit Innovation Partnership established an industry partnership between the MTA, New York City Department of Education and City Polytechnic High School of Engineering, Architecture and Technology.

Together, these partners have launched a transit-focused 9-14 early college high school program. Along with partners TWU Local 100 and New York City College of Technology, the program enables students to earn a high school degree and an associate degree, learn academic subjects through their transit applications and participate in paid internships.
