Investing in the future of transit does not start and end in the physical world – it also requires an investment in the staff that manage and plan our transit systems.
Foursquare ITP recognized the need for short and affordable trainings that focus on developing hard skills for transportation professionals to more efficiently perform daily tasks associated with managing and operating a transit system. Sometimes learning on your own can be daunting or ineffective, and with shrinking planning departments, on-the-job training can be a burden on already strained senior staff. Likewise, new technologies can increase the efficiencies of repetitive and onerous tasks.
Foursquare ITP’s Transit Training Service offers affordable seminars, webinars, workshops, continuing education, and full-fledged curriculums for transportation professionals. Developed and lead by industry experts, our Transit Training Service extends beyond conceptual and theoretical transportation planning to instead focus on developing practical skills and techniques that can be immediately applied to a transportation planner’s everyday work.
The Transit Training offerings listed below are pre-developed courses that we customize to meet each agency’s or institution’s budget, time constraints, and desired skillset outcomes. The courses are delivered either in-person or via webinar, and are offered directly to our customers and through webinars and at conferences.
Transit Trainings cover the areas of Transit Planning Skills, Federal Regulations and Compliance, and Asset Management. However, training modules can be mixed, matched, customized or requested individually.
