This report addresses a project whose goals were to create, use, and disseminate information on a process for developing transit agency comprehensive training plans (i.e., plans that contain the training needs for all positions in an organization). The report considers the following:
• The importance of agency training plans and the need for an appropriate process to produce one.
• Information on the project that was undertaken to design and use an appropriate transit agency training plan process.
• The design, components of, and rationale for the training plan process selected for this project.
• Application of the selected training plan process to three Pacific Northwest transit agencies and the results this produced.
• The utility of the selected training plan process for transit agencies.
• The attempt to disseminate information on the training plan process to transit managers throughout the United States.
The findings suggest that this training plan process is a highly useful tool for designing, implementing, and managing a transit agency's comprehensive training program.
