The Academy of Transit Training and Specialized Transportation Services has been established to help new and existing transportation companies with training that will assist the participants with achieving Professional Excellence in Passenger Transportation.

The Academy of Transit Training and Specialized Transportation Services has been established to provide transportation companies with the means for developing the skills needed to be successful, profitable, and for achieving Professional Excellence in Transportation.
Our approach is simple. We are not on online program! We offer training workshops that are on-site, and in person, for individuals to obtain hands on understanding of transit management fundamentals.

It will be our mission to work with emerging new companies and existing companies with training of their ownership and staff on critical business components to ensure success and profitability.
The instructors bring a wealth of experience and information to each workshop session that is taught. The information that is given is everyday useful information that can be taken back to the company and used right away.
