Synthesis of Information Related to Transit Problems. Topic SF-12. Paratransit Managers' Skills, Qualifications, and Needs

<font face="Arial">Easter Seals Project ACTION hosted a Consensus Conference in 2005 to explore recruitment, training, retraining, and rewarding paratransit managers. It was directed at the long-term goal of increasing the competency of paratransit managers, as well as the effectiveness of their training. To move toward this goal, it is important to explore the background of current paratransit managers. </font><font face="Arial">This synthesis will document the state-of-the-practice in paratransit managers' skills qualifications, and needs in order to increase the understanding of the current state of paratransit management. Transit management, educators, human resource directors, trainers, as well as current or future paratransit professionals would find it valuable in planning action steps needed to improve the profession. </font><br /><br />
