We have just hired the person who used to hold this position and since it is a departmental director position, it must pay a minimum of $120k per year. I have long maintained that we pay our bus system director way above and beyond the typical salary for such a position and this is something I know a bit about. So, one might ask why a mid-to-upper level career person in public transit would leave a state position in charge of over 500 buses to come run dinky old Annapolis Transit with its 20-some odd buses, and of which maybe only a handful are actually in operation at any one time. So here is the job circular for the director of bus operations at the MTA and you can see that even the upper edge of the salary range is below where we start the minimum pay! It also says that qualified applicants may be subject to background and reference checks (the below brought to my attention by Transittalent.com).
