Within the next five to ten years, more than 50 percent of transit industry workers are expected to retire. The American Public Transportation Association has made filling those shoes one of its top priorities. Pamela Boswell, APTA's vice president of program management and educational services, recently talked with Progressive Railroading about the association's first National Transportation Career Day for students in kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as other ways APTA is trying to raise younger generations' awareness of career opportunities in public transit.
