Milestone Graduation at Metro
Los Angeles - - A host of luminaries were on hand for the most recent Metro Bus Operator Bridge Program graduation as 25 individuals finished their pre-employment training. With the conclusion of this class, the transportation company celebrates the hiring of more than 600 people since the program's inception in 2006, a highly significant number, especially in light of the recent economic downturn.
The Metro program continues to improve lives as a result of this successful partnership as noted in part by Metro's Executive Office Don Ott who stated, “The collaboration between Metro, Los Angeles Valley College Job Training, and Community Career Development has greatly helped us meet our workforce needs, and it has helped the people of Los Angeles County who rely on us to provide essential transportation services to get to work, school, medical appointments, and other destinations.”
