'Forbes' Recognizes Transit as 'Best Employers'

Four of the largest U.S. public transit agencies and Amtrak are among the 500 “America’s Best Employers of 2016” representing 25 industries recently announced by Forbes magazine.

The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority appears on the list at number 125; Boston’s Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, 271; Amtrak, 320; Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, 408; and New Jersey Transit Corporation, 488.

“More than 20,000 employees work around-the-clock to do more than just move trains, our employees work hard every day to move people—connecting family and friends across our more than 500 destinations. For our employees, working at Amtrak is more than just a job; it is an opportunity to be a part of something bigger,” Amtrak reported on its blog, noting that this was the second year in a row it appeared on the Forbes list.

Forbes’ data collection partners surveyed more than 30,000 employees at organizations with at least 1,000 people to compile the list.
