looking for a Director over our Transportation Department, reporting to our Executive Director of
This role is unusual in at least two ways. First,
these kinds of roles don't come open very often in an

this role will oversee both our bus and rail transportation teams. As such, it's a rare opportunity to broaden
your experience across both in a leadership role.
What might qualify you? Well, proven experience
in bus or rail operations is critical. Both bus and rail
is a plus, but we are open to cross-training a great
candidate from either area.
Of your 12+ years of transit experience, at least
5 of those should be in management. This role will
manage 5 managers and, through them, over 1600
employees in a union environment. As such, your
management experience should prepare you for that
kind of responsibility.
TriMet is looking forward to some interesting
things in the near future, with an influx of great people and lots of promotion opportunities in a broad
variety of areas. So you should not only embrace
change, but also be effective in managing strategic
changes, setting goals, metrics and business plans.
We are interested in learning about your noteworthy
accomplishments. We want to hear about the great
things you've done in your past and what you might
do for us!
