Rail and Public Transit Division's training program helps transit providers meeting compliance requirements by providing training and technical assistance. Training emphasizes fiscal and asset management, preventive maintenance, safety practices, drug and alcohol testing, civil rights, and ADA. The Rural Training Assistance Program (RTAP) provides funding to assist with designing and implementing training and technical assistance projects and other support services that meet the needs of transit operators in nonurbanized areas.

Technical assistance and training program provides for training opportunities by subject experts, sometimes in conjunction with FTA regarding specific FTA grant requirements and scholarships to attend state, regional or national workshops or conferences for providers of transportation services. This program is designed to assist all transit operators, including those in urbanized areas.
