Student Trainee

June 2019 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

This summer I was fortunate to be working in one of the leading transportation authorities of the west coast, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. I became acquainted with the small but hard working Signal Projects team, where I learned all the factors that go into designing or upgrading an traffic intersection. I loved how kind and knowledge my supervisors were and I built up a strong camaraderie with my fellow co-interns. I enjoyed the progressive work environment and the high standard my colleagues held themselves to in providing more efficient and equitable mobility services to the citizens of San Francisco.

What I wish was different

During my summer, I was lucky enough to sublease an apartment in San Francisco. However, I still wish for more affordable housing for the residents that need to stay in the area year round. The rental prices range from two to four times the amount I pay in Davis.

Advice

Join the Institute of Transportation Engineers! I learned so much from that organization that I believe it was what helped me gain my internship.
