Florida Transit Operator Trainer Training Program

In 2000, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) at the University of South Florida (USF) partnered to develop the Florida Transit Operator Trainer Training Program. The program offers training courses to Florida's transit operator trainers through a voluntary state and federal certificate program. The program is overseen by the Florida Operations Network (FON) who serve in an advisory capacity. The FON meets quarterly to discuss the program's goals and accomplishments and provide direction to the project team. The FON also meets to discuss industry issues, problem-solve, network and institute positive changes in transit on a statewide level. The Florida Operations Network (FON) members are highly motivated Florida transit operations managers. This proposal outlines CUTR's effort to continue to meet the goals, missions and objectives set forth for both the training component and FON elements of the Florida Transit Operator Trainer Training Program.
