Who keeps buses moving? Frontline women. March marks Women’s History Month, a time for us to come together and celebrate the innovative contributions women have made back in time over the course of history and in the now, in contemporary society.
Women in transit come from a variety of professional backgrounds, bringing unique perspectives to a male-dominated industry. They are serving as leaders and drivers of change that are transforming the transportation industry now and in the years to come.
As a salute to women on the frontlines, we’re sharing their inspiring thoughts and advice. With their hard work, heroic efforts, and unwavering dedication – PSTA connects those who need transit most to their destinations. We thank them for showing up and making a difference every day.
Enjoy insight and thoughts from PSTA’s women on the frontlines in celebration of Women’s History Month:
