Metro named a winner of the CEAC Veterans Employer of the Year Award

Metro has been named one of nine winners of 2014 CEAC Veterans Employer of the Year Awards for its proactive stance in veteran hiring. 

Since Metro’s Veterans Hiring Initiative started in 2012, Metro has hired 156 veterans and has established a very ambitious goal of veteran new hires of 12% over a 3-year period and for the Bus Operator Bridge Program, a goal of 20%.

Metro will be participating in the following job fair for veterans. If you are a veteran, active duty military member, guard/reserve member or military spouse, drop by our table and say hi! Some of the job fairs are for veterans only, while others are open to the public–please check the linked sites for more info.

  1. It’s about time MTA acknowleged the veterans working for them. In 1997 they laid off almost exclusively veterans working for them.
