This paper focuses on determining the best way to improve the study habits and academic management skills of summer transportation students in grades 9 through 11. To find the most useful teaching method, 12 students were exposed to three learning methods.  Students were taught via field trips, hands-on activities, and lectures. This work describes the program and teaching methods applied.  Further research is required to fully determine which method would be most appropriate for students considering careers in the transportation industry.
