PADG 5031 - Public Transportation Service Management (3)
This course provides critical managerial skills for students who desire to manage public transportation systems in the U.S. Students are introduced to the emergence of public transit systems in the U.S., and review present and future trends with emphasis on how the public mass transportation industry is currently funded and managed. Most public transit systems in the U.S. are funded largely by the federal government and to a lesser degree by states and local governments. A number of federal, state and local government rules, policies and guidelines exist that must be understood and followed by transit managers to guarantee continued funding assistance. This course will cover a number of these rules and regulations and equip students with the knowledge and expertise needed for them to become successful transit managers. Students will also gain practical experience through internship and apprenticeship programs currently offered by the City of Durham and the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
