New transportation innovations, policies and programs will quite literally change the world as we know it.

The changing landscape and new challenges that present themselves will inevitably give way to new job opportunities.

But these opportunities won’t fill themselves. The baby boomer generation, along with their experience and leadership, is on its way out of the workforce. And even for the few that remain, the new technology demands some new skills we could have never anticipated 20 years ago.

Educating, recruiting and training new workers is critical to managing our country’s infrastructure safely and efficiently. Mobility21 worked to develop a transportation workforce capable of designing and maintaining the complex transportation systems of tomorrow.
