||Administrator Norbert Tiemann and UMTA Administrator Frank C. Herringer sign an agreement providing for an interagency program to meet evolving training needs in urban transportation. The program is designed to develop programs tailored to changing and expanding roles in the transportation field. During the first phase of the new program, needed training will be identified for transportation professionals who are responsible for those phases of systems planning and development that encompass transit as well as auto and truck transportation. The second phase provides for developing priority training and education programs to meet those needs.|
