3 regions = 3 distinct stories. How are workforce initiatives in Denver, Seattle and the Twin Cities helping businesses and economies grow along transit? Leaders from community colleges, cities and counties share their experiences. Models include: a training and employment program for transit construction and operators; a corridor-level model focused on employees and business development and retention; and an innovative approach to developing a food hub employment center near new transit.
