Move Ahead With Us

MTA New York City Transit is the largest public transportation agency in North America and one of the largest in the world. Our public transportation system moves more than seven million people on an average weekday. However, there is much more to us than just running trains and buses. We are also developing projects that improve public transit and the environment. Here are a few of our programs. You can learn more about NYC Transit and the Environment by clicking here.

The Internship Program: Our History, Your Future

MTA New York City Transit established the Internship Program in 1981 and currently has a partnership with more than 200 colleges and universities throughout The United States and Puerto Rico. Internships include paid and unpaid projects. The program has been a success for New York City Transit, colleges, universities and students. A minimum of 170 students participate in the program during the school year and more during the summer. Since the program’s inception, a considerable number of participants have been hired for full-time positions after graduation.
