At AC Transit, we are committed to promoting gender equality in the workplace. In 2020, we introduced the Women Leadership in Maintenance (WLIM) program to help women advance into leadership roles within our maintenance department. Our efforts were recognized in 2021 when we were awarded the Employer of the Year by the Women’s Transportation Seminar for showcasing the achievements and contributions of women at our agency. We will continue to strive towards equity and support women in the transportation industry.
