Metro is driving opportunities that allow students to experience a seven-week Transportation Career Academy Program Virtual Summer Internship on career and academic exploration in the transportation industry. This summer, 136 interns will connect with their peers and professionals in team building activities and career planning to support their personal and professional development.
