 T        This issue focuses on the challenges of recruiting talented young people to the tran-
     sit industry. We will need the very best we can get in the coming years to guide agencies
     through the continuing challenges of constrained budgets, burgeoning ridership and
     advances in technology. We have to compete for these candidates and seek them out.
     Let’s not assume they will find us.
