Solution

RATP Dev established a student/intern program to provide hands-on experience to students that also provides Longview Transit part-time maintenance assistance.  To bolster the program, RATP Dev's local Director of Maintenance became a member of the advisory board for the school of diesel mechanics at the community college to identify potential students early in the cycle when they seek valuable internship experience.
