Metro Transit Academy Accepting Applications

April 26, 2012

METRO is excited about a new leadership development program that is designed to educate transit advocates about transit operations, initiatives and challenges.  The goal of the program is to enhance awareness about METRO, create partnerships with the community and develop a platform for transit advocacy efforts in the Houston region.  The first class graduated in March.  The next class is scheduled to begin in June.

A key component of the program is that participants will take their new knowledge and put it to use by designing individual action plans that they will implement in their community.  The next METRO Transit Academy begins Wednesday, June 6, 2012 and will consist of seven (7) weekly evening sessions scheduled from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The class concludes Wednesday, July 25, 2012.  If you are interested, applications should be submitted no later than Tuesday, May 15, 2012.  For more information regarding the METRO Transit Academy, please feel free to contact Jose Pulido at 713.739.4888 or via email at
