This report of the Transportation Research Board will be of interest to transit staff concerned with implementing diversity training initiatives at their agencies. Both established and newer agencies might use the synthesis to review efforts underway in both the public and private sectors. The purpose is to document the experiences of selected public transportation agencies, as well as experiences in other industries. This synthesis offers examples of initiatives underway. Appendices detail specific transit agency survey responses and examples of training documents. This document integrates information from a search of available literature with survey responses obtained from staff at 22 transit agencies across the country. Case study information was collected from 10 agencies.
