APTA Grows Public Transportation Ranks at 'Careers in Motion' Fair

APTA partnered with the Transportation Research Board (TRB) to showcase public transportation careers at the “Careers in Motion” networking fair, Jan. 7, during TRB’s 97th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

The fair provided an opportunity for attendees—ranging from recent graduates to seasoned executives—to meet with APTA staff and ­prospective employers from across the APTA membership, who reviewed resumes, offered advice and explained the many career opportunities available in public transportation.

Executives from APTA member organizations in attendance included APTA Immediate Past Chair Doran Barnes, executive director, Foothill Transit, West Covina, CA; Mike Loehr, chair, APTA Business Member Board of Governors Workforce Development Committee, and global practice leader, transit and rail, track and civil, CH2M; Ferdinand Risco, vice chair, APTA Workforce Development Committee, and assistant executive director, Transit Authority of River City, Louisville, KY; and Lana Ilyina, senior talent acquisition and onboarding specialist, Trapeze Group.

APTA recognized the participating members for their help, along with Los Angeles Metro, Clever Devices and HNTB, which contributed materials.

Hundreds of public transit professionals participated in the "Careers in Motion" networking fair at TRB's 2018 Annual Meeting.
