CUTR Mechanic Training Program

Transit Maintenance Analysis and Resource Center

TMAARC, originally formed as The Florida Maintenance Training Program (FMTP), began in April 1990 when the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) signed a joint participation agreement. The agreement entailed setting up training for public transit technicians in classrooms and labs and establishing a resource center of training programs and materials. TMAARC was also to produce and distribute Transit Training, a quarterly newsletter on training activities, training tips, and new programs. Administration of all parts of the program was undertaken by CUTR.
